afternoon doctor. I want to ask?
Hello Mrs. Wulan! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The bulging and enlargement of the veins can be either normal or abnormal. The bulging and enlargement of the veins can be normal and healthy as a result of physical activity. Physical activity increases blood flow throughout the body, resulting in wider veins. Physical activity also increases the size of the muscles, so that the muscles press on the veins on the surface of the skin and become visible. If the bulging and enlargement of the veins you experience is normal, your blood fat levels (total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides) will be low on examination. Veins will also be prominent in people with less subcutaneous fat. In people who are older or very thin, there is very little fat under the skin, so the veins are more visible.
Visible veins can also be caused by disease in the veins, such as varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, and surface vein thrombosis (superficial vein thrombosis). Varicose veins often occur, especially in women of reproductive age. Varicose veins that occur during pregnancy usually get better after delivery. Sometimes, varicose veins cause pain, itching, the vessels feel hard, or even bleed. If there are symptoms that you feel on an enlarged vein, you should see a doctor, especially a vascular surgeon. The doctor will check the state of your blood vessels to determine if there are any abnormalities. The doctor will also provide therapy that is suitable for your condition.
Steps that you can take at home to reduce enlarged veins include losing weight. Patients who are overweight have a high risk of developing enlarged veins. Mothers also should not sit or stand too often because sitting or standing positions that are too long make the veins have to work hard to return blood to the heart. Also avoid crossing your legs or bending your legs when sitting.
This is the information that I can convey. I hope this helps.
