Not only are varicose veins an unattractive condition spotted on your leg – they’re also potentially very dangerous to your health if not treated on a regular basis. GMA’s health morning show “Pinoy MD” shed some light into the causes of varicose veins.


According to “Pinoy MD,” there comes a time when blood flow in our body becomes irregular – often swelling certain veins in our body. These veins get back up with the extra volume of blood – become gnarled and enlarged and turn into varicose veins. According to dermatologist Dr. Jean Marquez, there are a lot of factors that contribute to the appearance of this condition. Besides a family history with this condition, other triggers apply when varicose veins appear.

They could be a sign of someone’s age or because of their profession. If a person’s job often sees them standing up or not move around as much, then they are susceptible to this unsightly problem. If left untreated, then these problematic veins could very well lead to a worse condition called venous thrombosis or blood clots. Worst still, these blot clots could appear in the lungs in a potentially fatal condition called pulmonary embolism.
