the article says:

"The next time you get your blood pressure checked, ask your health provider to take measurements on both arms. Having a difference in readings between arms could indicate a condition called peripheral artery disease, a narrowing of the blood vessels in the arms and legs that restricts blood flow to the heart and raises the risk of a heart attack and stroke."
