Why Does Vein Damage Occur?

While there are many types of vein disorders, varicose veins are the most common vein malady among American. Statistics indicate that half of the population older than age 50 have varicose veins, but the problem can occur in younger people as well. The problem occurs when the valves in your veins are weakened or damaged, thus allowing blood to pool in your lower legs.

What can damage or weaken your veins?

There are a variety of factors that can damage your veins. The following are some of the more common reasons why vein damage occurs:

1. Aging: As you get older, the valves in your veins stop operating as effectively. This means you can develop varicose veins in your legs that look unattractive and cause swelling and discomfort.

2. Heredity: If a family member has varicose veins, there’s a good chance you will as well.

3. Obesity: When you’re overweight, your veins must work harder to carry blood to your extremities. That causes your vein valves to become weak and not work properly.

4. Sedentary jobs: People who work jobs that requires long periods of sitting or standing are more likely to develop varicose veins.

5. Pregnancy: Pregnant women have more blood in their bodies which increases stress on their veins.
