Weight Loss

How Weight Loss Can Affect Venous Health

One important thing patients can do to reduce their risk of developing venous disease, and/or help to slow its progression, is to lose weight. Extra weight adds extra pressure to the legs, exacerbating symptoms. While weight loss will not prevent you from developing venous disease if you have a strong family history or other risk factors, it will help you to be more comfortable, as well as reduce your chances of developing a serious complication like blood clots. Additionally, losing weight will improve your overall health and make exercising easier.

 

Before deciding on a diet and weight loss plan, please speak to your doctor for advice on how to do it in the most healthful manner. Never take weight loss supplements or pills without the advice of your physician.
