Food For Thought | Peripheral Artery Disease Diet: A P.A.D. Warrior’s Handbook For Healthier Eating
(as of Dec 01,2023 22:34:13 UTC – Details)
Food For Thought is a handbook designed specifically for patients with Peripheral Artery Disease, a chronic circulation issue impacting mainly the legs, to use with their care team to develop a personalized, healthier eating strategy versus a one-size-fits-all approach. It’s a 100-page comprehensive, yet not exhaustive, guide that answers the frequently asked questions from our P.A.D. Warrior Task Force. It also offers worksheets and shopping lists to help patients to easily comply with their eating plan.
Topics include:Why Your Arteries Are On FireHow Food Damages And Heals ArteriesCholesterol 101: A guide to understanding cholesterol and other fats in your blood.Exposing Hidden Risks: Specialized Blood Testing For Artery HealthHow to discuss the MTHFR gene mutation with your physician and mitigate your risk of artery damage and abnormal clotting through dietary changesEasier Healthy Food SubstitutesHow To Choose The Best Olive OilThe Keys To Kidney Health and Slowing Progression of P.A.D.How to eat on Coumadin/WarfarinNutrition & Wound HealingPack A Nutrient Punch In A PotEating From The FreezerGrow What You EatEating Out…Healthy?Novel Ways To Reduce Claudication…. and more. Several P.A.D. Warriors also shared their successful approaches to healthier eating!
This handbook does not provide medical advice and is not intended to replace that of the patient’s own healthcare team. It’s designed to provide supplemental materials for patients and their healthcare teams to create a personalized, sustainable eating strategy. The idea is to help patients step-by-step make the changes they need to improve their prognosis. In 94 pages it’s impossible to cover EVERYTHING a patient needs to know about food. But it’s a great start! Future editions will expand on other important dietary topics and include more diet hacks and recipes submitted by P.A.D. Warriors.
