Is There a Special Diet for PAD Patients

A Mediterranean diet has been recommended by the American College of Cardiology as the best diet for people suffering from atherosclerosis, including Coronary Artery Disease and Peripheral Artery Disease. When you visit the website of the American Heart Association, there are excellent guidelines about the Mediterranean diet, including cookbooks and recipes that you can try. There are also various other diet components that are necessary. Good hydration is important, and there are some over-the-counter supplements, such as L-arginine, which can sometimes help with these mild symptoms. In general, there is an expression, “What’s bred in the bone will come out in the flesh,”. Meaning you need to take good care of yourself, eat well, and make sure you have a healthy diet, avoiding those things which we all know to be bad for us. That can really help with your Peripheral Artery Disease. Learn more at
