Vascular disease is the term for disease that affects the arterties, veins and lymphatics. It can affect arteries, veins and vessels negatively, as well as affect how blood flows around the body.
Peripheral arterial disease is one example of vascular disease. This can occur when there is a blockage in the arteries to the limbs - typically occurring in the legs. Or, another example is coronary heart disease - which again, occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked. Vascular diseases can lead to much bigger health problems, such as heart attacks and heart failure.
Some forms of vascular disease can be prevented, for example those blood flow blockages that are a result of a poor diet or smoking.
To reduce the risks of vascular disease you should exercise regularly, stop smoking and eat healthier.
