2. Poor Nail Growth
Your toenails and fingernails are likely something that you do not think much about. You will cut them when they get long and then move on. However, you probably do notice that they grow at a fairly decent pace and you have to cut them often. If you are suffering from peripheral artery disease, you may start to notice that your nails are not growing at all. In fact, it is important to consider how often you cut your nails. If you notice that you are not cutting your nails as often as you once did, it could be a sign that you have peripheral artery disease. This condition can cut off blood flow to the hands and feet. When this occurs, your nails are not going to grow as fast because they are not getting the blood that they need. Once again, this is a tricky symptom that often is missed.
