Why it’s time to Rethink Varicose Veins
Many people consider varicose veins to be simply a cosmetic issue, so they delay treatment or avoid it completely. The truth is, untreated varicose veins can progress to a more serious form of vein (venous) disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which can present more serious signs and symptoms such as pain, ankle swelling, fatigue of the legs, skin damage and ulcers.
That’s why a coalition of medical societies is coming together for the Rethink Varicose Veins campaign to encourage the more than 30 million Americans with venous disease, including varicose veins and CVI, to learn more and see a vein specialist for diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, several minimally-invasive treatment options are available that are covered by many insurance plans.
On www.RethinkVaricoseVeins.com, you can learn more, take a self-assessment, find a vein specialist and spread the word to friends and loved ones.
