Varicose veins causes
Varicose veins can be caused by many factors, the most common of which are:
- Age: getting older deprives veins of their elasticity, as a result of which they stretch. The valves in veins become weaker, which affect blood circulation.
- Pregnancy: it may increase the amount and volume of blood in a pregnant woman’s body and at the same time decrease the blood flow from the legs to pelvis. As a result, the veins become significantly enlarged.
- Sex: women are much more likely to suffer from varicose veins than men. Regarding women, varicose veins can result from pregnancy, menopause or pre menstruation – which involve hormonal changes.
- Obesity: being overweight or obese is very dangerous for the legs. Too much weight adds more pressure on the veins on legs, as a result of which varicose veins appear.
- Family history: you are more susceptible to varicose veins if your family members have suffered from this problem.
- Lack of movement: if you sit or stand regularly for many hours, e.g. because your work requires it or because you lead a sitting lifestyle, the blood in your legs does not circulate is it should and varicose veins will appear sooner or later.
