About Varicose Veins
People who have more risk to have varicose vein
Varicose vein is getting recognized broadly these days, but it is a vascular disease which is not accurately understood. Number of onset is not small. There are many reports that, among females of 40 year-old and more, about 10% have apparent varicose vein. There is even a report that 62% of male and female of 30 year-old and more have varicose vein if light symptom is included.
Female have relatively higher risk of having varicose veins than male
The reason is that pregnancy and childbirth, in addition to the weak muscle and blood recirculation, will be the causes for varicose vein. Corpus luteum hormone secreted during pregnancy makes vein soft and that induces varicose vein easily. Rate of onset increases on the second and third time as a female gives more birth.
Blood vessel weakens as people age, and one-way valve becomes fragile and the rate of onset increases.
