One of the most common conditions that can affect the overall health and wellbeing of both men and women of all ages is vein disease. Veins have valves which open and close to help return blood to the heart, but if these valves become damaged the blood can’t be properly returned. Therefore, blood can pool in the legs and weaken the vein walls due to the pressure. Additionally, as time goes by, the increased pressure can cause more valves to fail.
Some people may have visible signs of vein disease, such as varicose or spider veins, whereas others may have no outward indication. Spider veins are a symptom of early stage vein disease, and treating them can help stop their progression and improve their appearance. In addition to causing pain and discomfort, unsightly, bulging varicose veins that are left untreated can lead to additional health issues and a progressively worsening appearance.
The risks may include skin problems such as serious bacterial infection, discoloration due to blood leaking from the vessels and into the tissue, skin thickening or ulceration, and eczema. Other indications may be leg cramping, restless leg syndrome, or swelling, and there are risks for even more serious complications.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of vein disease, it’s important to have an evaluation with a specialist vein doctor. A specialist vein doctor can help you determine the appropriate options for your vein disease treatment. With modern therapies, there’s minimal discomfort and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. In fact, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease when medically necessary.
