Why does varicose veins occur at a young age? Isn't varicose veins a disease of the elderly? What is wrong with me that I got varicose veins so early? I also do sports, but why do I have varicose veins? Many questions such as these are among the questions asked by patients who come for varicose veins examination.
One of the main causes of varicose veins at a young age is genetic predisposition.
Genetically, the fact that leg veins are suitable for varicose veins, especially in the case of professions that require standing for a long time (teachers, military-police-security officers, barbers, etc.) causes these veins to varicose veins faster.
This is because the long waiting of dirty blood in the veins, which are the veins responsible for directing the dirty blood upwards, causes the vein that is susceptible to expansion to expand even more. In addition, increased intra-abdominal pressure and overloading of the legs also cause varicose veins.
Varicose veins are caused by the dilation of the leg veins and the inability of the valves to function.
As the veins dilate, the valves, which are developed according to a normal vein, open up, these valves, which normally work as unilateral valves, are now insufficient and when standing or intra-abdominal pressure increases, dirty blood rushes towards the legs. This is called venous insufficiency. When this venous insufficiency occurs, varicose veins can cause serious pain and cramps.
In these patients, there may be wounds on the ankle, some may have intravascular clots and clots in the lung, and results up to death may be seen.
Varicose veins can also be caused by the enlargement of the reserve vein and can also be seen as capillary varicose veins.
The enlargement of the large vein can occur in genetically predisposed individuals due to prolonged standing, increased intra-abdominal pressure, prolonged standing, and childbirth. Normally, everyone has only sore feet when standing for a long time, but in those who are genetically predisposed to varicose veins, the veins dilate and varicose veins form.
In addition, superficial capillary varicose veins can occur for several reasons:
If there is perforating vein insufficiency; there is insufficiency in the veins coming out of the muscles, we see it from the outside as condensed capillaries.
If there is saphenous vein insufficiency, the capillaries are also prominent in certain areas.
Thin capillaries are formed due to trauma such as hitting, bumping or striking the ankle, or due to wearing tight clothing. It is associated with skin sensitivity.
Genetic predisposition is a major cause of varicose veins at a young age. In addition, especially sports with weights for bodybuilding, standing for a long time, hitting and hitting the legs cause more varicose veins in these patients.
Weight can be seen as one of the factors in varicose veins because it increases intra-abdominal pressure. However, there are also many patients who are thin and have varicose veins.
Varicose veins will go away if treated. External creams, compression stockings, herbal creams, medicines do not provide varicose veins treatment. Varicose veins can be treated with non-surgical varicose vein treatment techniques.
Varicose veins are dangerous when they become very large and a clot forms inside. Sometimes wounds occur on the ankle, which can cause problems in the future. When is varicose veins dangerous? You can get more detailed information by examining the page ►.
