What Can I Do About Vein Disease?
Although varicose veins and spider veins can certainly be cosmetic issues that greatly impact your life and self-image, they may also pose a number of medical concerns associated with underlying vein issues. By understanding the risks and factors that contribute to vein disease, you can be better prepared to take preventative measures towards vein disease.
Although there may be certain factors you simply cannot avoid-including genetics, age, and gender- there are many preventative measures you can take to decrease your risk for damage, disease, and unwanted symptoms.
SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PREVENTATIVE MEASURES INCLUDE:
- Sitting for a long period of time can be a major risk factor! So get up and move around if your job requires sitting for prolonged amount of time.
- Also standing for a long period of time is not good for your vein health. Raising your legs at the end of the day can help decrease the stress in your leg veins.
- If your vein specialist diagnose you with early stages of vein disease and he/she prescribes pressure stockings, use them. The pressure stockings can help in pushing the blood back up to the heart.
- DO NOT SMOKE
- Exercise regularly: daily exercise such as walking, cycling, weightlifting, and others can improve leg strength and circulation, thereby reducing the risk of vein disease!
These lifestyle changes can play a huge role in improving your vein health and reducing your risk for vein disease, varicose veins, and spider veins. They are also a vital part of an overall healthy lifestyle that can reduce your risks for a number of other health conditions and diseases and improve your confidence. If you feel like you may need treatment for your veins there are a number of different things that can be done to help the problem. The benefit of seeking medical advice is always better than being stuck wondering if you have a problem or not.
