Why do you get varicose vein?
Hello, I’m Dr. Hashimoto.
Today, I’d like to explain why you get varicose vein.
What is that bump on your leg?
It might be varicose vein.
This is not the sort of disease that threatens your life. But quality of life decreases.
Function of blood vessels.
Humans have arteries and veins spread throughout the body. Arteries that containing a lot of oxygen and nutrients are used by various organs. Oxygen is converted to carbon dioxide. Nutrients are converted to waste products. And it becomes veins blood. Arterial blood is distributed to every corner of the body by the pumping action of the heart. But venous blood cannot be pumped by the heart. So, it is difficult for it to return to the heart. Therefore, through the pumping action of the muscles in the lower limbs and the action of ant reflex valves, venous blood returns to the heart against gravity.
The ant reflex valves
The ant reflex valves break down due to genetic factors, pregnancy and childbirth or standing or desk work, venous blood flows backwards.
It causes congestion in the legs.
When blood congestion in the lower limbs, the blood vessels bulge, giving the appearance of a bump. Symptoms of blood congestion include swelling, heaviness and clumps in the lower limbs.
