Varicose veins are considered to be a hereditary concern. Women are more likely to suffer from varicose veins and as many as 50% of women can be affected. Our veins have valves that ensure that blood flows in only one direction. When these valves do not fulfil their duty, blood can pool in the vein instead of returning back towards the heart as intended. Varicose veins usually affect the legs, as they are the farthest point from the heart, which can make it harder for blood to flow in an upward direction.
– Venous Valve malfunction
– Extra weight gain during pregnancy adds extra strain on the legs
– Hormonal changes during menopause can weaken the valves in the veins.
– Standing for long periods of time adds pressure on the legs and veins, and makes it harder for blood to circulate in an upwards motion, which leads to pooling.
– Gaining weight in general increases the pressure on the veins and can weaken the vein walls over time.
– Keeping your body weight down
– Keeping your legs elevated when possible in order to ease the flow of blood from the legs and relief of pressure on legs.
– Changing your standing and sitting position regularly so that you are not constantly applying pressure on the same spot.
– Supportive tights can be helpful
– Avoid wearing high heels and clinging hosiery.
