I genetically inherited a body prone to varicose veins. My mother had issues since she was 17 (and she was really skinny). I am 22 and I discovered I have some on my legs, too. I know weight can contribute to this, so I lost about 25 pounds since April (99 days, to be more specific). I would still like to lose at least 20 more pounds (I used to be 187 lbs, I am 163-165 now). What would improve this condition? I already eat pretty clean, I have a good blood pressure, I have a normal sugar level.

I SCREWED IT UP! I DON'T EVEN WANT TO KNOW HOW BAD... I was so close, but gave up... (04.07.2021)

I'M BACK ON THE TRACK!

I work well under pressure, because if I am not under pressure, I don't work.

Really sorry to tell you, but if your mother had it at 17 and wasn't overweight/obese BMI, then it's largely genetic.

 

Higher weight can be a risk factor for varicose veins, but there's no diet specific for weight loss for varicose veins prevention. Weight loss is weight loss, so it's honestly whatever works best for your body!

Thank you! I am actually sad to hear this. Her varicose veins extended to her uterus, and she had troubles giving birth to me. She had a C-section, and the doctor told her that if she remains pregnant again, one of those veins could actually crack, causing an internal hemoragy which would be a serious threath to both her and the baby. I'm frightened by the thought that one day I might be following the same path, and I am scared that I would have the same issue with my pregnancy. Not currently pregnant or planing, but just the though of it...
