Be in the Know About Your Blood Flow

Vascular disease refers to any disease of the blood vessels or circulatory system. There are three types of blood vessels that carry blood throughout the body: arteries, veins and lymphatics. When one of these is affected, it can cause problems with the heart or other parts of the body.

Risk Factors for Vascular Disease

  • Having a family history of heart/vascular disease
  • Smoking
  • Being obese
  • Having high cholesterol
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Lack of physical activity


Vascular disease is not always symptomatic, especially in the early stages, but there are symptoms for its complications, such as heart attack or stroke.
