What Causes Vein Disease?

Varicose veins and spider veins are symptoms of vein disease. 80% of vein problems are hereditary. So if your parents and/or grandparents had bad veins, then you are likely to have them too. Other contributing factors include pregnancy, obesity, hormone therapy, injury, and prolonged standing or sitting. By the time women are 50 years old, more than half will have vein disease. Also, 25% of men have vein disease by 50. So you are not alone. The good news is…it can be treated. A Phlebologist, aka vein doctor, can diagnose and treat your veins in an office setting with no general anesthesia and little or no down-time.
