If we talk about self-diagnosis, as a rule, in the case of this disease it is unmistakable: a branched system of veins, dilated and swollen veins, fatigue and swelling of the legs, is a good enough reason for going to the doctor. Men have a very specific criterion: from synthetic or semi-synthetic socks with elastic bands sewn into the upper part of the legs remain long absorbable prints-dents.
It is commonly assumed that today’s conventional medicine has only 2 methods of treatment, and that is not radical, chronic venous insufficiency-sclerotherapy – injections of special drugs that reduce the slagging of vessels, and surgical correction of the venous system. Even after treatment there can be no assurance that the disease will not return. Some stabilization of the patient can be achieved using medical bandage that wrapped his feet. But to cure the disease, this method does not allow.
Since the disease is hereditary, the important role played by timely prevention. If any of the parents suffered from varicose veins, there is a sense in advance to take care of the health of the feet. If the vein was extended to the father and mother, the appearance of this disease should be considered inevitable.
The main prevention is a profession. It is clear that the person who wants to protect themselves from this disease, you cannot work where you have to lift weights and long hours standing. Interestingly, the dynamic stress walking and running – is not contraindicated. If, nevertheless, a standing load is inevitable, for the period when they are promoted, legs should be bandaged with an elastic bandage or use a special medical hosiery. Both should exactly fit the person in accordance with the size and degree of development of the disease. Wrong choice of bandages and knitted fabrics may be or inefficient (compression of blood vessels too weak), or unhealthy (excessive compression). So choose the therapeutic hosiery or bandages should not the patient himself, a vascular surgeon, an appeal to which this case required.
Insurance against deterioration should be to prevent sunburn, since UV rays stimulate the growth of the venous system. It should be avoided and other thermal load on the legs, such as saunas, baths, hot tubs.
Of sports loads is not contraindicated in venous insufficiency, the best is swimming: horizontal position of the body, dynamic loads on the foot and the hydrostatic pressure of the water. But such sports as weightlifting, surfing or skiing, should categorically exclude, they can trigger a sharp deterioration.
Women need to remember that the high heel contributes to the development of varicose veins. The maximum height of the heel, generally acceptable for walking, 4 cm during pregnancy it would be good for a woman to go to the vascular surgeon, not waiting for symptoms, a compulsion to do it. If this is not possible, it is necessary to prophylactically use wearing compression hosiery.
Having a predisposition to venous insufficiency, it is necessary to follow the socks. Socks with rubber bands won’t work. Or when you want to find cotton socks without rubber bands, or stretch the top of socks so they don’t leave fingerprints on swollen ankles.

But posture “foot to foot”, on the contrary, it is necessary to exclude – that it provokes the stagnation of blood in the legs. If a person is accustomed to sit, putting one foot to the other, the pressure inside the vessels increases, and with the years it will inevitably become a patient of the surgeon-phlebologist, regardless of their heredity. Even sleep better, having put under his feet a little roller or rubbed your feet on a pillow so that blood during the night, cast from the feet. If the work is sedentary, at least 5-10 minutes during each time you need to devote to the warm-up in the form of walking or 20 times to get up on your toes.
