    It just depends on whether you have known risk factors as outlined in this article. http://www.healthhype.com/peripheral-arterial-disease-pad-leg-symptoms-causes-treatment.html

    Cigarette smoking, high cholesterol levels, hypertension and a sedentary lifestyle may be risk factors seen in your age group that could result in peripheral arterial disease. You doctor will need to discuss this with you as modifiable risk factors can reduce the severity of the condition or even delay the progression with prompt treatment and appropriate lifestyle changes if necessary.
