Swollen Feet are Sign to get Varicose Veins Checked Out

The most common reason that people choose to go to a varicose vein treatment provider for removal of their varicose veins is because they are self-conscious about the appearance of those veins. However, there are medical reasons behind the need to get varicose veins checked out as well. Those people who have varicose veins and who also experience swelling in the feet or legs should make sure that they get the veins checked out to see if there are any other underlying health problems that are causing the veins to be present.

In most cases, varicose veins are primarily harmless. The basic things that can be done to prevent them (regular and appropriate exercise, for example) will be good for the body and will prevent any additional problem from occurring. But in some cases varicose veins may be a sign of blood clotting and circulatory problems that need to be addressed sooner rather than later because they have the potential to become fatal.

Swollen legs and feet can be caused by a variety of different things including lack of exercise, prolonged sedentary activity and poor diet. However, when they are present along with varicose veins, there is a higher likelihood that there is a problem that should be checked out. Asking a doctor about the varicose veins is a good thing to do if this is the case for you.
