Go With The Flow
Varicose veins are enlarged rope-like veins that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin which occur due to a weakening in the vein walls and valves.
These can appear as dark purple or blue and look lumpy, twisted and/or bulging in appearance. The presence of varicose veins are typically an indication of a further underlying condition known as chronic venous insufficiency (venous disease).
Knowledge is Power
Varicose veins form over time when too much blood pressure causes veins to expand and stretch enough for the vein walls to lose their elasticity.
This increase in pressure can happen for a variety of reasons, including sitting or standing for long periods of time, pregnancy, blood clots, age, and obesity. It is also proven that women are more likely to develop venous disorders.
Take Control of Your Future
Some of the common negative effects of varicose veins can include an itching or burning sensation, muscle cramps, increased pain when sitting or standing for too long, and discoloration. A few rarer complications can include bleeding, ulcers, and even blood clots. Consult your doctor if you think your varicose veins are causing these or any other health effects.
The Best Defense
Good habits such as exercise, weight management, and compression stockings can treat the symptoms of varicose veins but unfortunately, this is a very common condition where heredity is the number one contributing factor. If your mother or father suffered from varicose veins, then you have nearly a 70% chance of developing varicose veins.
