PAD risk factor? I was wondering what is the most frequently associated risk factor with PAD
smoking or age or does anyone else has something else in mind

I was going with age

It was a random question that hit my head while reading about PAD

any inputs?:

Ps I accidently posted this in the step1 forum some dude said smoking what do the few good men(or women ) in here reckon?

Shouldn't it be the same as for coronary disease?

therefore :
the most common is Hypertension
and the most serious is Diabetes Melitus
