Know what varicose veins are...
ABOUT THE DISEASE:
Varicosity is the “penalty against gravity”. This saying is very apt as this is a penalty we pay for adoption of the erect posture. This disease is associated with those occupations that involve standing upright for long durations. The varicose vein and their associated symptoms and complications constitute the most common vascular disorder of the lower extremities. Varicose veins of the lower limb are a common problem. The prevalence has been variously reported from as little as 2% to over 20%. Western studies have shown that 20% population suffers from varicose vein and 1% has skin changes proceeding to venous ulceration.
In India incidence of varicose veins seems to be far less common because in India most patients present late with complications of varicose veins such as pain, edema, pigmentation and ulceration. Varicose veins do not threaten life and are seldom disabling, but it causes a considerable demand on medical care. It is the cause of morbidity and loss of precious work hours and a significant financial burden on the health-care system.
Causes Of Varicose Vein
Varicose veins are mainly caused by weakened valves and veins (walls become stretched and less flexible) in the legs.
Weakened Valves & Veins
Varicose veins are mainly caused by weakened valves and veins (walls become stretched and less flexible) in the legs. Normally, one-way valves in the veins keep the blood flowing from the legs up towards the heart. When these valves do not work as they should, blood collects in the legs, and pressure builds up. This causes the veins to become weak, large, and twisted.
Excessive Pressure on Legs
Any condition that puts excessive pressure on the legs or abdomen can cause varicose veins, such as standing for long periods of time
Hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy and menopause can also cause varicose veins in females.
Obesity & Sedentary Lifestyle
Regularly sitting for long periods leads to poor circulation in your legs. When you sit your veins must work harder to move blood to your heart. This can lead to swelling in your ankles, varicose veins, and even blood clots, also known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Sitting with your legs crossed or bent can be worse.
The risk of varicose veins increases with age. Aging causes wear and tear on the valves in your veins that help regulate blood flow. Eventually, that wear causes the valves to allow some blood to flow back into your veins where it collects instead of flowing up to your heart.
Some of the other reasons for varicose veins are give below
Heavy lifting or excessive physical activity that puts pressure on the legs
Loss of Skin elasticity

How much Hairfall is of concern and requires treatment?The American Academy of Dermatology has also stated that it is normal for a person to lose about 50–100 hairs each day. Anyone who notices that they are losing much more hair than they usually do (during combing or washing) or observe any warning signals like gradual thinning at the forehead or receding hairline, circular patchy bald spots or loosening of hair should consult a doctor (dermatologist or trichologist).
What are the reasons for excessive hairfall?Excessive hair fall can be the result of one or a combination of the below mentioned reasons: Family history (heredity) The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called androgenic alopecia. In men, it’s called male pattern hair loss and in women it’s called female pattern hair loss. It usually occurs gradually and in predictable patterns - a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair or widening part in women. It is due to the effect of testosterone metabolites (DHT) in genetically susceptible hair follicles. Hormonal changes Hormonal changes caused due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, PCOD or thyroid problems can cause permanent or temporary hair loss. Stopping some types of birth control pills can also cause a temporary hormonal imbalance. Medical conditions Medical conditions include Alopecia areata (immune system related condition which causes patchy hair loss), Scalp infections (such as ringworm or scalp psoriasis) and Trichotillomania (a hair-pulling disorder). Sexually transmitted infection (STI) like Syphilis can also lead to hair loss. Left untreated, syphilis can cause patchy hair loss on the scalp, eyebrows, beard, and elsewhere. Nutritional Deficiencies Vitamin deficiencies (particularly B, C, D and E) or too little biotin, iron, protein, or zinc can lead to hair loss. Medications Hair loss can be a side effect of certain drugs, such as those used for cancer (both chemotherapy and radiotherapy), arthritis, depression, heart problems and high blood pressure. Stress Any kind of physical trauma (surgery, accident or a severe illness) can cause temporary hair loss. This can also happen after a stressful time in your life, such as a divorce, death of a loved one or financial crisis. Stress can affect the blood supply to the hair follicles thereby reducing the nutrition required for hair strength and growth. Dramatic weight loss Sudden weight loss is a form of physical trauma that can result in hair fall. It may be possible that the weight loss itself is adding stress to your body or that diet restrictions which are part of weight loss program are resulting in vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Loss of hair along with noticeable weight loss may also be a sign of an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Hairstyles and treatments Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair tight can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Hot-oil hair treatments, permanents, bleaching, dyeing, straightening, curling etc. also cause damage to the hair. Before starting any treatment what are the important things to know?
