Heart Attack Symptoms – Are they different by Gender?

With the incidence of heart disease death rates declining more rapidly for men than women, I’m sometimes asked if the symptoms related to heart attacks might be different between genders as well.

Heart Disease – Know Your Risks in Plano TX

Varicose vein treatments are advisable if the condition is causing discomfort or if you just don’t like the way your legs appear.

Can Varicose Veins Recur Once Removed?

Even with careful treatment and adherence to the treatment regimen at home, you may experience varicose veins recurrence. If there is recurrence it is usually the development of a new varicosity in a previously normal or minimally diseased vein.

What Happens if Varicose Veins are Left Untreated?

If varicose veins are left untreated they may go on to cause increasing degrees of pressure on the skin in their vicinity. This can lead to swelling, skin irritation, skin infection (cellulitis), blister formation and, in the worst case, breakdown of the skin, with development of ulcers. Treatment may be as simple as wearing compression stockings on a regular basis.

What Can Be Done During Pregnancy To Help Prevent Varicose Veins?

While varicose veins are inherited, varicose veins during pregnancy are very common. The weight of the baby and the enlarged uterus exerted on the large vein returning blood to the heart from the legs (Inferior Vena Cava) may cause the blood to pool in the legs. This can cause the veins in the legs to bulge and to create the appearance of spider veins. In
