Venous disease affects genetics from 40 to 79%, depending on whether both parents have problems or only one. But one-fifth of it is directed by each person. What the diet looks like, how often and intensely do you move, and also the nature of your job. The work usually takes at least 8 hours a day, and if you sit down this time and spend your free time in front of a television or computer, you increase the likelihood of worsening symptoms or even chronic venous disease such as heavy legs, swelling, whiskers and varicose veins. The same is true if, on the contrary, you stand still all day.

What happens when we stand or sit still for a long time?

The venous system is not built to static positions. The blood flowing down is driven by the heart’s pumping and gravity. Blood flows against gravity towards the heart and is driven only by the venous valves inside the veins. This is much more difficult, so it is necessary to help the venous valves at least by daily natural movement. “The veins run between the muscles, and therefore at the moment when, for example, the calf muscle works, it massages the vein and thus helps the blood return to the heart. If we just sit, it can happen that the blood accumulates in the lower parts, and therefore the initial swellings appear in the area of ​​the ankles and insteps. “ explains angiologist MUDr. Petra Zimolová from the Department of Cardiology, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and Motol University Hospital in Prague. Occasionally getting up and walking around the room or circling your ankles, stretching your insteps and toes is more than desirable.

Which professions take it the most?

The most susceptible to the onset and development of venous disease are therefore occupations where you stand statically in one place all day. Manifestations of venous disease will worsen if the nature of your work requires not only standing but also wearing high heels. Even those who sit all day are no better off. In addition to worsening venous disease, they may also suffer from hemorrhoidal disease. Chronic venous disease is not helped by sitting across the legs, typical of women. This can lead to increased blood pressurewhen large blood vessels are compressed and the blood then flows back from the legs more slowly. The result is the same as when standing for a long time, and these are swollen and heavy legs, whisks and varicose veins.

All-day standing on the spot in heels: flight attendants, hostesses, promoters, etc.

All-day parking on site: vendors for cash registers, hall nurses, receptionists, cosmetic and hairdressing services, etc.

All day session: drivers, clerks, administrative workers, office professions, etc.

Don’t change jobs, change your free time

It is completely unrealistic for many to change jobs, whether for financial reasons or because they simply enjoy their work. From the doctors’ point of view, the best prevention is to avoid obesity, actively move, do not wear choking clothes and socks and wear quality wide shoes. If you don’t want to or can’t change your job, change the way you spend your free time. And if you already feel speeches in yourself, see a GP. “He himself can already cure something, give good advice to the sick, recommend the observance of regime measures in case of venous disease. It can prescribe suitable venopharmaceuticals, which are drugs to strengthen the venous wall that improve blood return. “ explains angiologist MUDr. Petra Zimolová.
