Dr. Gosin on SNJ Today and read below for a refresher on how Dr. Gosin and Shore Vascular and Vein Center can help you with treating Varicose Veins:

We’re halfway through summer, however the “risk” of varicose veins isn’t precisely over. You may have possessed the capacity to abstain from calling attention to your legs or perhaps you abstained from hitting the beach this past summer because of unattractive leg veins. They’re truly nothing to be humiliated about however. Truth be told, in the United States, around 70 percent of ladies and 45 percent of men experience some sort of vein issue or problem. Varicose veins specifically, influence half of individuals 50 years or older.

With those measurements, it may be easy to determine whether or not you may be susceptible to being a victim of varicose veins. There are quite a few variables that decide the danger of having visible veins in legs. On account of that, who precisely gets varicose and spider veins? What’s more, what causes determine if you will get them down the line or not?

The five most normal determinants of varicose and spider veins are:


As you get older and more established, your vein valves debilitate. When this happens, blood that ought to stream towards your heart can wind up streaming in reverse, making blood pool and your veins to enlarge and become varicose due to the pressure.


As statistics are quick to point out, ladies are more likely to develop varicose veins than men. Hormones are a major explanation behind this divergence. The progressions ladies’ bodies experience amid monthly cycle, menopause and even birth control have an impact since female hormones have been known to relax vein walls. Some pregnant women develop varicose veins.

Also, pregnancy can increase chances because the volume of the blood in a lady’s body increases yet the blood stream from her legs to pelvis does not. This is the body’s characteristic response to growing a solid baby, yet therefore can also bring about the veins to end up swollen, particularly towards the end of pregnancy. What’s more, changes in hormone levels during pregnancy can likewise add to the probability of creating varicose veins.

Medical history

On the off chance that you happen to be born with frail vein valves, then your danger of creating varicose veins or a venous reflux disease is expanded. Likewise, if your family has a past filled with family members who have had them, it is also more probable for them to appear in your legs as well. About 50 percent of individuals with varicose vein issues have the same issue with a relative.


Being overweight or obese puts additional weight on your veins. The abundance of fat in legs presses the vein and valves can begin to malfunction. When this happens, blood can stream in reverse and begin to pool, bringing on the veins to end up noticeably varicose.

Prolonged Standing or Sitting

Sitting or standing for drawn out stretches of time can prompt more than discomfort. When you’re similarly situated for long stretches, your blood doesn’t stream as effectively as it would with regular movement, this causes the veins to work harder to pump your blood up to your heart. The additional exertion can cause the veins to get swollen and varicose.
