VARICOSE VEINS

VARICOSE VEINS

MAY BE A SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUE AND NOT JUST A COSMETIC ONE!

Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and twisting veins, often appearing blue or dark purple. They happen when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction or to pool.

  • Aching
  • Bleeding Varicose Veins
  • Blood Clots
  • Heaviness or Fatigue
  • Leg Cramps
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Skin Discoloration
  • Skin Ulcers
  • Swelling

VARICOSE VEIN RISK FACTORS
Aging As you age, veins grow weaker and become more at risk
Gender Women are more likely to develop vein disease; however it is not uncommon for a man
Heredity Genetics is the number one contributing factor for developing vein disease
Lifestyle Sitting or standing for long periods of time
Obesity Being overweight can put excessive pressure on your veins
Pregnancy Pregnancy increases your risk for developing varicose veins

If you have varicose veins or experience leg pain and fatigue you may have venous reflux disease. Venous reflux disease is a progressive medical condition and if left untreated, may worsen over time and develop into a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency. Don't wait for your varicose veins to become something worse. Schedule an appointment today with Dr. Vishal Rekhala to diagnose if your health is at risk.
