For PAD patients

1/  quit smoking is the first and the most powerful advice to follow in PAD
2/ all dark choc are not equal. Patients should be educated about ingredients and patients D2 or with MS should only choose choc without sugar.



3/ In no way dark choc could be compared with exercise. Exercise is the treatment of PAD. Anti-platelet, statins and anti-hypertensive drugs are the second pillar.
