Millions and Millions of People Have it…

Did you know 50% of women and 25% of men, by the time they are 50 years of age, have vein disease?!! It’s true! And, over 80% of the time it comes from genetics.  There are approximately 50 million people in the United States that have vein disease, and most of them either don’t know they have it or don’t know where to go to have it treated.

The following are some of the symptoms of vein disease:

    • night cramps
    • swollen ankles
    • restless legs
    • bulging veins
    • spider veins
    • tired, heavy legs
    • leg aching or pain

If you have any of these symptoms, make an appointment with a doctor’s office that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of veins and vein disease. These doctors are called Phlebologists. Make sure the doctor you choose specializes in Phlebology, a specialty now recognized by the American Medical Association.  Seek help from a specialist who has been trained in this field, as not all are created equal.
