Vascular health is very important to our patients, and Soleil Surgical always strives to educate and protect its patients. It’s important to learn, recognize and raise awareness about what causes these vascular diseases, what puts you at risk of contracting any chronic vascular diseases, and how to prevent their onset.

Vascular diseases can affect anyone, and each disease affects the vascular system and its adjacent parts, including arteries, veins, heart, capillaries, and branches. There are many types of vascular diseases, including peripheral artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, atherosclerosis, stroke, and other illnesses that form part of this specific group.

There are many risk factors that drastically affect a person’s health and likelihood of developing a chronic vascular condition. As such, it’s important to consider all of these factors as potential risks and threats to your overall health.

Some of these factors include:

  • Diet
  • Family history
  • Genetics
  • Diabetes
  • Hyperlipidemia
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise

While some of these factors can’t necessarily be changed, some are factors you can take action on to lower your risk and improve your vascular health. These diseases can appear at any age and at any time, and symptoms may not appear until they are life-threatening.

The best ways to reduce your risk of vascular disease include:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Losing and maintaining a healthy weight
  • Eating healthy by maintaining a proper diet
  • Exercising frequently, even in small ways or walking routines
  • Taking cardiovascular concerns seriously by attending regular medical check-ups
