Incidence of varicose veins

Oct 12th 2013 at 12:32 AM

No wonder that the incidence of varicose veins is a bit lower in colder countries. So beware of overexposure to the sun's heat, saunas, furnaces, etc
• Smoking - research shows that the wall of the veins also suffers the assaults of the substances contained in cigarettes which favor the appearance of varicose veins.
• Pregnancy - During pregnancy, the amount of circulating blood increases, and thus increases the work of the veins. It also increases the amount of progesterone, the hormone that it dilates the veins.
Another thing that happens in pregnancy, the uterus grows in size and will compress the veins of the abdomen and pelvic area of women, thus posing an obstacle to the rise of blood from the legs to the heart.
The "varicose veins" that appear during the first pregnancy often disappear after delivery. Already those that arise from the second pregnancy usually remain after the baby's birth.
• Sedentary lifestyle - the movement of the legs is very important to "pump" blood from the veins. So stay long sitting or standing still is very bad for the work of the veins.
The exercises and combat sedentary lifestyle are very important for the body circulation.
So be very careful with the work in which we are forced to sit still long, as are factors that cause varicose veins.
• Birth control pills and hormone replacement - again encountered the problem of hormone disrupting leg veins. Some researchers have contraceptive hormones responsible for varicose veins in young women. The Forum of the Brazilian Society of Angelology and Vascular Surgery warns including the care that must be taken with medicines used for hormone replacement therapy.
