“Shifts in hormone levels during pregnancy and menopause put women at a heightened risk of vein disease,”
New Hyde Park, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
In honor of Women’s Health, Garvey Vascular Associates is providing information on women’s health issues. The New Hyde Park, New York based vein center is focusing particularly on varicose veins, a problem that women are more likely to experience than men.
“Shifts in hormone levels during pregnancy and menopause put women at a heightened risk of vein disease,” says Dr. Julius Garvey, a leading vein doctor at Garvey Vascular Associates. Extra weight gained during pregnancy and menopause can put additional stress on the veins. Weight management and regular exercise can help lower the risk of vein disease, as can avoiding standing or sitting in the same position for extended periods of time.
Garvey Vascular Associates is well versed in this and many other women’s health issues. The vein center is providing more information on the topic through their Facebook and Twitter , Google+ pages, and Blog.
Women can reduce their risk of varicose veins and other health problems by making simple lifestyle changes. All women are encouraged to better understand the health issues they might face in order to make healthy choices.
