Varicose Veins Preventive Measure

There are many things you can do to help prevent development of vascular diseases, including spider veins, varicose veins, venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis and leg ulcers.  These include:

1. Increased activity: take short walks at different times during the day. Avoid sitting over long periods

2. Uncross legs when sitting: Crossing legs when sitting seems a natural, but it blocks circulation to the upper legs impairing blood flow.

3. Keep legs elevated when sitting: This action helps blood flow and prevents pooling of blood in your lower legs or venous stasis a precursor to leg ulcers.

4. Dietary regime with decreased fat and protein: Your body’s slow metabolism finds it difficult to digest and utilise protein and fat. It will increase the risk of developing venous diseases.

5. Change position frequently: If your job require sitting for long periods try to moving around. Take periodic walks to stimulate circulation flow.

6. Massage: Gently massage the legs each day to promote better circulation

7. Decrease alcohol and drugs intake: This will slow down the development process of the disease and keep you active much longer. It will help you to enjoy better health


Seemingly cosmetic issues such as spider veins may be a symptom of underlying problems such as chronic venous insufficiency. Before conditions worsen to varicose veins, it is advisable to go for vascular ultrasound checks. When venous diseases deteriorates to decreased blood supply, injuries or open wounds are often complicated by bacterial or fungal infections, leading to leg ulcers. The healing of leg ulcers is often long and tedious. However with development of new treatments, one may be available to help you and cause rapid response to therapy. Hence, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with a vascular specialist as soon as possible.
