vein disease

With almost 80% of the workforce in the United States working jobs that entail long hours of sitting at a desk. Vein issues in the leg are on the rise. Over 30 million people in the country suffer from various vein diseases. Each year an estimated 150,000 people are diagnosed with chronic venous insufficiency, while deep vein thrombosis affects over 250,000 Americans each year.

Over 30 million Americans suffer from vein disease. The percentage that seeks treatment? Only 10%—translating to around 1.9 million. And this number is expected to grow in 2020. Vein diseases are becoming increasingly common because of a combination of hereditary and hormonal factors, including obesity, prolonged standing, external injuries, and liver disease, among others.

You may have heard that the risk of developing varicose veins increases with age. According to research, the risk of developing varicose veins increases with age as you tend to get more susceptible to vein issues, especially if you have a family history of such problems. Seniors naturally have limited physical abilities and tend to engage in fewer activities that improve vein health, such as walking or running.
