Patients who quit smoking, take steps to lower their cholesterol, regularly monitor their blood pressure, and manage their weight will see a lower rate of plaque buildup, lowering their risk of atherosclerosis
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Premier Vein Institute is publishing a new article written to educate the public on atherosclerosis. The Tampa, FL based vein center hopes the article will encourage patients to make positive lifestyle choices to help lower their risk of the disease and avoid its potentially serious outcomes.
Dr. Obinna Nwobi, a leading vein specialist at Premier Vein Institute, explains that there are several lifestyle factors that can increase a person’s risk of atherosclerosis. “Smoking, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity can all have a negative impact on arteries,” he explains. “Patients who quit smoking, take steps to lower their cholesterol, regularly monitor their blood pressure, and manage their weight will see a lower rate of plaque buildup, lowering their risk of atherosclerosis.”
Atherosclerosis increases a person’s risk of heart attack and stroke, making it a serious condition well worth understanding. Premier Vein Institute hopes that through providing easily actionable information in their newest article they can prompt readers to seriously consider the effect their lifestyles have on their veins and take steps to eliminate unhealthy behaviors.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
