Risk Factors

There are a number of different factors that impact a person’s risk of vein disease. Some of these factors can be managed through lifestyle changes while others are outside of an individual’s control.

Age, family history, and gender are all risk factors that a patient cannot control. People are more likely to experience vein issues as they grow older. Age can cause wear and tear that makes veins less effective, increasing the risk of circulation issues. Patients who have a family history of vein disease are more likely to have problems themselves. 

Finally, women are more likely to struggle with vein disease than men, most likely because of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy and menopause. There is evidence that birth control pills may increase the risk of varicose veins.

The best vein doctors in Covington also cite lifestyle and occupational factors as part of a patient’s vein disease risk. The disease is more common in people who are overweight and obese. Carrying excess weight may put additional stress on veins, increasing the potential for damage. Vein disease is also more common among people who live sedentary lifestyles as veins depend on muscle movements to push blood back towards the heart. Finally, vein disease is more common in people whose occupation forces them to stand or sit for extended periods of time.

While there is no way to change your age, family history, or gender, lifestyle changes can have an impact in lowering your risk level. Covington varicose vein doctors recommend regular exercise and wearing compression stockings to help keep blood flowing at its best. Weight management may also have a positive impact. Even if these methods are not effective, our vein center provides a number of safe, minimally invasive treatments to correct circulation issues.
