Avoid High-impact activities. Your veins become sensitive and much more susceptible to tears, and could even dislodge blood clots.
- Avoid sitting or standing for long periods. As much as possible, take breaks and move around throughout the day.
- Avoid constrictive clothing. Tight clothes, high heels, and crossing your legs when sitting can compound the stress built up in your legs
- Avoid the Summer heat. Heat will cause your blood vessels to dilate in order to increase blood flow, which is troublesome for people dealing with venous insufficiency.
- Avoid Salty Foods. Sodium in your diet will increase water retention in your body, which causes swelling and increased pressure on your veins.
