Varicose Veins Symptoms

Varicose veins symptoms…………………………

The cause of varicose veins can range from family history to weight problems. Varicose veins are enlarged raised blood vessels that are close to the surface and usually appear blue.

When the wall of the vein is weakened the blood cannot continue to flow properly. The blood pools and accumulates within the veins, which are burdened by the excess blood. They grow weaker and they begin to bulge.

Varicose veins symptoms are quite common. Over 50% of middle-aged people in the United States have them.

Varicose Veins Symptoms

In many people the cause of varicose veins can be anything that puts excess pressure on the veins. If a diet is high in fat and low in fiber, this can put pressure on the veins because it contributes to constipation.

Undue pressure on the legs and veins from inactivity, pregnancy, obesity and long periods of sitting and standing can also result in varicose veins. A weakness in the veins as a result of genetics is also a common cause of varicose veins.

Women with a hormone imbalance, particularly women taking a synthetic hormone replacement, are prone to having varicose veins symptoms that result in varicose vein problems.

Nutritional deficiencies also can be the cause of varicose veins.

Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose vein treatment can be quite effective at reducing the pain and the swelling. The veins can also be strengthened thereby preventing the condition from getting worse.

A high fiber diet is the best way to fight varicose veins. It reduces your risk of constipation when you eat fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Consume 1 to 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed daily, along with 10 ounces of water, to obtain healthy fiber also.

Grape seed extract and bilberry also improve circulation and strengthens the wall vein. Vitamin E is a natural blood thinner that promotes blood flow and reduces inflammation of the veins.

If you have varicose veins that are swollen, red, tender and warm to the touch it is very important to see your physician. If there are sores or a rash on the leg or near the ankle, there could be circulation problems in your feet and you need to see the doctor immediately.

Doctors perform Sclerotherapy if they feel it is necessary. This is where a solution is injected into the vein that causes the lining of the vein walls to swell, stick together, seal shut and in a few weeks the vein will fade. (Sometimes more than one treatment is required.)
