Siragusa Vein and Laser Center: Vein Clinic in Nashville Releases a New Article on the Association Between Vein Health and Diabetes
December 17, 2016. Hermitage, TN. Siragusa Vein and Laser Center have put out a new article on the increased risks diabetes can have on an individual’s vein health. It is estimated that nearly half of all Americans over age 50 have some form of vein disease. According to the vein clinic in Nashville, the risk for developing just one type of vein disease known as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is 5 times higher in obese Americans under the age of 40.
According to Dr. Tif Siragusa, the center’s Medical Director and a pre-eminent expert in varicose and spider vein treatment in Nashville, obesity is one of the primary risk factors for developing problem veins. “Losing weight through healthy diet and regular physical activity is not only the healthiest way to get to a healthy body weight, but it can also lower blood pressure and decrease risk for vein disease and other health conditions.”
Patients of any weight are welcome at the center, where vein laser surgery, sclerotherapy, and other minimally invasive procedures are promoted over traditional surgery.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
At the very least, varicose veins have an unpleasant appearance. However, they can also lead to other serious consequences such as painful, swollen legs. Over half of all Americans have some form of vein disease. Aging is probably the biggest offender in terms of risk factors for the development of varicose veins.
Is it an overgeneralization to say that we all want to look younger and healthier? Certainly, many of us do. With modern advances in technology, there are multiple treatment options available for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy are but a few. Now you see them—now, you don’t. In the hands of leading vein doctors, it is often just that simple.
