    Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is caused by development of plaque in the arteries which is commonly termed as atherosclerosis. The plaque reduces or limits the flow of blood which can leads to failure of organs such as kidney, may cause foot or leg amputations, and in severe cases PAD may cause heart attack, cardiac arrest or stroke. In general, a person with PAD is recommended to do treadmill walking as it allows the better flow of blood which was earlier restricted by the plaque

    Hence, option D is correct
