Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii releases a new article in which they talk about the important relationship between vein health and overall health. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, many people don’t think that their varicose veins are a real disease with real negative effects. As a result, they fail to seek treatment and try to “live with” their varicose veins, sadly allowing the underlying disease that causes them to undermine and impair their overall health in many ways, including increasing their risk for stroke, heart attack, and diabetes.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of the prestigious vein treatment center in Hawaii, “failing to seek treatment for varicose veins often results in unexpected and undesired consequences. Left untreated, varicose veins lead to chronically swollen legs and ankles that can become so painful you lose the ability to stand or walk for more than a few minutes.”
These Big Island vascular doctors hope that this article reaches a wide audience in the general public and helps them to understand that seeking treatment for their varicose veins is in their own best interest, and is their surest method of staying healthy. Anyone interested in learning more about vein disease and its treatment can find more information on the clinic’s website.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are quite common afflictions in the United States, affecting up to 30 million people. While women tend to suffer from vein disease more frequently than men, both sexes can be afflicted. Spider veins are usually smaller, web-like veins that might have a tangled appearance, while varicose veins are usually larger, twisted, bluish veins that are raised on the skin.
There are several safe and effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, including the Venefit™ procedure, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. All procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. They all help restore both the health and beauty of the legs with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
