Prevention of Vein Conditions

Certain lifestyle choices can decrease your chances of developing a vein condition. These include the following:

Daily Exercise

Maintaining a healthy weight and incorporating 30 minutes of daily exercise. Activities recommended include walking, climbing stairs, bicycling or swimming. This type of exercise can take the pressure off the veins by reducing the pool of blood in the calf muscles.

Stay Active

Maintaining motion in the legs and avoiding long periods of standing or sitting is recommended. While traveling, try flexing your ankles or take short walks to increase blood circulation to the legs.

Compression Stockings

Consider wearing compression socks, the most common conservative treatment for vein conditions. These special stockings can aid blood flow by putting pressure on the veins in the legs. This ensures the blood is properly moving back to the heart. Compression stockings can prevent the formation of deep blood clots. Consider wearing them during long flights or car rides.

Maintain Ideal Body Weight

Determine your ideal body weight and take steps to maintain this body weight. This can be achieved with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Avoid Saunas and Hot Tubs

If you’re at risk for a vein condition, avoid saunas, hot tubs and long baths. Why? This can cause the blood to pool more easily in your veins.

Low Sodium Diet

Maintain a low-salt, high-fiber diet to avoid any additional pressure on your veins which could result in water retention or constipation.
