Diseases Affecting Blood Vessels

Any disease affecting the blood vessels is commonly known as Vascular diseases. The blockage of blood vessels in any part of the body affects the blood flow to that area. This in turn also causes damage to the cells of the body. Diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, smoking and so on can be stated as some of the reasons for the occurrence of vascular diseases.
