Varicose Veins

Are you embarrassed by the unsightly veins running down your limbs? Are the veins that look like spider web a literal pain in your legs? Wondering what they are? Well, they are called varicose veins. They are the enlarged, protruding veins which can sometimes be lumpy or twisted.

Don’t worry, varicose veins are very common. Three out of ten people have them.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins usually doesn’t cause any discomfort. Only a few cases result in pain or lead to skin ulcers or blood clots.

These twisted veins mostly develop in the legs which can be quite unsightly. Don’t go by the way it looks, it may look scary, but it is a common condition and can be treated by simple measures.

Varicose veins develop when the valves that open to let the blood flow into the heart becomes weak or gets damaged due to some reason. This causes the blood to flow backward resulting in blood pools in the veins and hence causes the veins (certain areas) to swell and twist.

If you are looking for a good doctor to consult with, you can try Motherhood. The doctor’s at Motherhood will recommend you treatment options after a careful examination and collaboration with the experts from other fields of expertise to ensure you receive the best multidisciplinary care.

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Family history
  • Obesity
  • Standing or sitting for a long time

Can Varicose Veins be cured?

If the varicose veins do not cause any discomfort to the patient, it is left untreated. Complete prevention of varicose veins is close to impossible but improving the circulation and muscle tone can help in reducing your risk of developing it.

Here are a few things you can do to help prevent varicose veins; they are:

  • Exercising regularly
  • Reducing weight
  • Consuming a diet rich in fibre and low in salt
  • Wearing comfortable shoes
  • Elevating your legs

If the varicose veins cause discomfort, pain, or complications like ulcers, blood clots, or starts bleeding then treatment may be required to reduce the discomfort.
