Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as atherosclerosis — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Have you been diagnosed with Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)?
Possible responses:→ Never had it / don't know
→ Probably had it/minor symptoms now resolved
→ Significant symptoms now resolved
→ Current problem
→ Current major problem
Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) weakens artery walls and predisposes the damaged portion to enlargement.
Peripheral artery disease is a likely sign of more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in your arteries: Atherosclerosis of the peripheral arteries is by far the most common cause of peripheral vascular disease.
Atherosclerosis is a risk factor for reduced circulation in the brain, sometimes called ischemic vascular dementia (IVD).
