The veins in our legs are a vital part of our circulatory system, returning the blood to our upper body to be re-oxygenated and replenished before it once again circulates throughout our body. But there are various things that can go wrong with our circulatory system, especially as we age.
Varicose veins can be one result of underlying circulatory problems. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of the symptoms which may indicate the development of varicose veins and vein disease. Recognizing the condition in its earliest stages, however, allows you to bring it to the attention of your physician, and possibly take steps to minimize the problem.
