This New Year’s Resolution Can Help Save Your Life

Have you resolved to take care of yourself this New Year? Living in Louisiana, you may think about eating better, getting exercise and quitting bad habits as your resolutions. But what about your total vascular health? Resolving to get healthy means taking care of your health as a whole. Varicose veins are those unsightly bulging veins that look and feel uncomfortable. You may have considered getting them removed, but you thought they were just cosmetic. Varicose veins are not only unsightly, but they can also be physically harmful if left untreated.

Varicose veins develop as the veins in your legs weaken. When the valves in the veins do not work as they should, blood collects in the veins causing them to become enlarged. These veins can become painful and irritating and can cause other health problems. Venous reflux can be a byproduct of varicose veins, causing the large saphenous vein to become damaged. Varicose veins can also signal a deeper vein problem, such as deep vein thrombosis, which is a potentially life-threatening condition. Deep vein thrombosis is when a blood clot develops in the deeper veins in the legs; and if dislodged, it can cause a fatal embolism.
