The Causes of Varicose Veins

Presentation1Leg vein problems such as varicose veins, venous reflux, leg ulcers, varicose eczema, phlebitis and DVT are very common. Interest in these issues is very high and people often ask what causes varicose veins. Heredity and age are very important risk factors. Aggravating factors such as hormonal changes, pregnancy, obesity and certain occupations may also be important. Men and women appear to be almost equally affected. In this video, Ruth Wood interviews vein specialist Dr Haroun Gajraj and asks about the causes and aggravating factors associated with leg vein conditions.

Contact me today for a confidential chat

If you’re worried about your veins and would like a confidential chat please do get in touch. I am happy to offer simple advice by telephone or email for free and without obligation.

The VeinCare Centre also offers a screening assessment with our vascular technologist. For £25 you can have a scan with Wendy Parsons. She is not a doctor and so she could not give you medical advice but she can check your deep veins and your varicose veins and give you an idea of how bad they are and whether laser might be suitable for you. If you would like to have an appointment with Wendy please call 0800 698 3467.
