Chronic venous disease, also known as chronic venous insufficiency, is a dysfunction of the venous system that impedes blood circulation and creates an accumulation of blood in the veins, mainly in the lower limbs. It is a fairly common disease in Canada, affecting approximately 70% of women.

Risk factors

Chronic venous disease affects women in particular. In fact, 1 woman out of 2 is affected, while only 1 man out of 4 is afflicted with chronic venous disease. Some people are more at risk due to predisposing factors, for example:

  • Heredity;
  • The premenstrual period in women
  • Hormones
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Working while standing (pharmacists, teachers, cashiers, etc.)
  • Exposure to heat
  • Etc.

It should also be noted that aging naturally alters your venous system.

The symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency

When the symptoms of chronic venous disease appear, the venous system has already been altered. The most common signs include:

  • A feeling of heaviness in the legs
  • Pain and swelling in the legs
  • Restless legs syndrome or an uncontrollable urge to move the legs)
  • Night cramps
  • Itching
  • Etc.

If the condition is left untreated, the symptoms may worsen, and others may appear.
