How To Prevent Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are painful, swollen veins that usually affect the legs. While you may not be able to keep them from forming, you can prevent the ones you have from getting worse.
You also can take steps to delay other varicose veins from forming.

  • Do not stand or sit for long periods without interruption.
  • Keep your legs raised when sitting, resting, or sleeping
  • Do physical activities, strengthening the muscles in your legs.
  • Try to lose weight as this will improve blood flow.
  • Do not wear tight clothes, especially those that are tight around the waist.
  • Avoid wearing high-heeled shoes every day
  • Wear compression stockings if your doctor recommends them
