People who are concerned about the health of their veins should take steps to exercise on a regular basis, manage their weight, and quit smoking.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
The Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center has produced an article describing the risk factors for vein disease. The Nashville-based vein center says that vein disease can affect anyone at any time, but that there are some risk factors that increase the incidence of this condition. They also detail alternative steps that everyone can take to maintain effectively functioning veins.
Dr. Tif Siragusa, a leading vein doctor at the Nashville’s Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center, affirms lifestyle changes are an effective way to maintain a high level of venous health. “People who are concerned about the health of their veins should take steps to exercise on a regular basis, manage their weight, and quit smoking. Obesity and smoking can both weaken the veins, while exercise helps to promote better blood flow.”
The article also urges those who already have vein disease to see a specialist for vein disease treatment. The Vein and Vascular Center has all of the tools required to diagnose and treat vein disease. They make recommendations based on what is best for each individual patient to manage vein disease at every stage.
Dr. Tif Siragusa and the staff of the Vein and Vascular Center hope that releasing this information to the public will encourage people to recognize their own risk for vein disease in order to take steps toward making preventive measures against the condition and to seek treatment when appropriate.
