PAD and heavy Lifting

Patient : I have PAD I have already had a fem-fem bypass, also a bypass on my left leg. I am a bartender. Can heavy lifting worsen my condition?
Doctor :   Heavy listening will not worsen your condition. Conditions such as High blood Pressure and Diabetes will worsen Peripher al Artery Disease (PAD). If you have any of these conditions you should ensure that you take the appropriate medications and keep them adequately controlled. Smoking also greatly increases progression of PAD.
