Every fifth woman and every sixth man suffers from the consequences of a venous disorder. It is not without reason that venous disorders are among the most widespread diseases. When the veins are pathologically dilated, the venous valves no longer close properly. The veins can then no longer adequately fulfill their task of transporting the oxygen-poor blood back to the heart. As a result, the blood backs up, especially in the superficial leg veins. The result can be aching legs and edema (swollen legs). Severe forms of venous disease can also lead to varicose veins and conditions such as brown discoloration, eczema, hardening of the skin and the so-called open leg (ulcus cruris).
The following test was developed on the recommendation of leading medical specialists. The vein check cannot replace a careful examination by your doctor, but you can easily find out for yourself whether your risk of varicose veins or a serious vein disease is increased. Try it out and answer the 16 questions truthfully.
If the veins are disturbed in their function, this can often have far-reaching health consequences. Skin changes on the legs up to open legs or an increased risk of thrombosis can be possible consequences of chronic venous insufficiency. Timely examination and clarification by a physician with subsequent treatment can improve the symptoms and delay or even prevent progression of the disease.
Compression therapy is the basic treatment for chronic venous insufficiency. The principle is as simple as it is effective. Carefully controlled pressure on tissue and blood vessels compresses the veins back to their normal diameter. The function of the undamaged venous valves is supported, the return flow of blood via the veins to the heart is increased, and edema is reduced.
