Understanding carotid artery disease

As we age, our arteries tend to develop a sticky substance called plaque. Plaque buildup is related to:

  • smoking
  • not getting enough exercise
  • having high triglyceride (fat) or cholesterol levels in the blood
  • having overweight or obesity
  • having diabetes
  • having certain genetic factors, such as a family history of arterial disease
  • having high blood pressure

If plaque builds up in your carotid arteries, it’s called carotid artery disease.

According to the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, around 1 percent of 50- to 59-year-olds and 10 percent of 80- to 89-year-olds have narrowed or blocked carotid arteries.

No precaution required.
