Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the public in general has appreciated health care workers more than ever. Yard signs are still scattered about thanking these frontline caregivers. A recent study demonstrated that chronic vein disease is very common in these workers. This is in spite of the fact that they don’t have other cardiovascular comorbidities (i.e. heart or vascular conditions).
Unhealthy veins can affect your quality of life. This may come as a surprise to some, but to those who have suffered from spider veins and varicose veins, this is not a shocking statement.
Chronic venous insufficiency (or CVI) is a medical condition in which the veins do not operate properly. Usually this is due to damage of the vein wall and/or valves—both of which are critical for returning blood to the heart from the legs.
