What Are the Causes of Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?
Varicose veins can be the result of a variety of factors, including age, family history, inactivity, sitting for long periods of time, pregnancy, and obesity. But loss of elasticity in the veins, primarily in the legs, can be painful and unsightly.
Varicose veins occur (mostly in legs) when the valves in the vein become defective, allowing the blood to go the wrong way, which causes the veins to get bigger and bulge, becoming unsightly and painful.
While there is no way to completely prevent varicose veins, exercise with a healthy low sodium diet can assist significantly in prevention.
