Vein problems are relatively common among adults in the UK. Sadly once a vein has become an issue, there is very little in the way of ‘DIY’ treatment and professional vein removal treatment is the only option for sorting out varicose veins and thread veins.
Prevention is generally the best advice, it is always going to be cheaper than having to pay for vein removal treatment if you can avoid having vein trouble at all.
While genetic makeup is one of the key reasons (i.e. something that runs in families), it is by no means the only one and there are simple measure that everybody can take to improve their chances of not having varicose or tread veins – especially for those who are likely to be prone to them.
Avoiding Veins Problems – Top Tips
- Don’t stand for long periods of time
- Sit down regularly to take the weight off your feet
- Put your feet up: raising the legs aids circulation
- Keep mobile: gentle exercise helps to promote circulation
- Diet: a healthy diet helps circulation – be especially mindful of reducing salt
- Healthy weight – being overweight puts extra pressure on the circulation
- Avoid crossing the legs as this puts pressure on the veins and circulation
