Many of the diseases and conditions we treat creep up on our patients, providing few symptoms, if any.  Unfortunately, that doesn't make them any less dangerous, so it's wise to take the time to learn about your personal risk factors for vascular disease.  If you're at an elevated risk, schedule a consultation with a doctor and discuss your concerns.  Our team is available to monitor your vascular health, diagnose problems, suggest options, and create a customized treatment plan, if treatment is indicated.

 

Risk Factors for Vascular Disease and Related Health Problems

Several factors can contribute to the development of vascular disease and related health issues:
 

Smoking: Using tobacco can damage blood vessels, increasing the risk of atherosclerosis, where arteries narrow and harden.

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension):  This condition can strain blood vessels and lead to issues like aneurysms and stroke.

High Cholesterol: Unhealthy cholesterol levels can lead plaque to narrow the arteries, restricting blood flow and increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Diabetes: This disease may damage blood vessels over time, heightening the risk of PAD and other vascular complications.

Obesity: Carrying extra weight can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, and other conditions impacting vascular health.

Sedentary Lifestyle: Too little physical activity can weaken blood vessels, raising the likelihood of vascular problems.

Family History: There can be a genetic component to some vascular diseases, which means your family's medical history may predispose you to vascular conditions.

Age: The chance of experiencing vascular health problems increases with age.


Understanding these risk factors and addressing them proactively can reduce the chances of developing serious vascular disease.  If you're at an elevated risk of vascular issues, you should speak to a medical professional who can help you monitor your health.

 

Health Services Offered by Our Vascular Doctors in the Monroeville Area

Our team of vascular specialists in Monroeville, AL, offer a full range of health care services to diagnose and treat vascular conditions—both medically and surgically, as needed.
 

Diagnostics / Tests
To diagnose vascular conditions accurately, our doctors may perform tests, such as a vascular ultrasound. This is a non-invasive, painless test using sound waves.  The information from a vascular ultrasound allows us to view images of a patient's blood vessels so we can search for abnormalities. For more information, visit our blog post on vascular ultrasound.
 

Medical Treatments
Some vascular conditions can be managed with simple lifestyle changes and the correct medication. In many cases, our vascular doctors prescribe medications to reduce the risk of blood clots, improve healthy blood flow, or manage symptoms like pain and swelling.
 

Surgical Procedures
In the case of a more severe or complex vascular problem, surgery may be recommended. Our experienced and specially trained team are able to perform a range of surgical procedures aimed at improving vascular health—and with our state-of-the-art outpatient endovascular lab, we ensure that our patients benefit from the best technology available.
