What is PVD? How do I know if I have it?

There are just 10 seats remaining for tonight’s lecture at the Centre of Elgin, “What is PVD? How do I know if I have it?”

PVD, or peripheral vascular disease, is something 5% of people over age 50 are believed to suffer from. Peripheral vascular disease is the most common disease of the arteries and is caused by build-up of fatty material within the vessels. Many people live with this disease daily, and when untreated it can result in loss of limbs, stroke, severely limited mobility, and even death. The event at the Centre of Elgin (100 Symphony Way, right by the Fox River) is at 6 p.m. tonight. It will cover PVD signs, symptoms, and risk factors for the disease.

Dr. Raminder Singh and Dr. Maciej Malinski (of Ask the Cardiologist fame) will be answering questions and providing valuable information regarding peripheral vascular disease.
