3 Reasons to Address Veins Before Starting a Weight Loss Program

It’s that time of year again, New Years’ resolution season. In addition to starting a new year, we’re beginning a whole new decade. There’s no better time to work on your goals and set foot on the path to being the best you. One of the most common resolutions is to get in shape or begin exercising regularly. If you have issues with your veins, this can be especially helpful. However, you may want to consider addressing some of your vein issues before starting a weight loss program to help you be as successful as possible. Here are three reasons why that might be useful.

More Motivation

Feeling motivated to being an exercise routine is hard enough even without the excuse of a vein disorder. For those that do have a vein disorder, you know that your legs are likely very prone to fatigue and aches even without adding exercise to the mix. Having a vein treatment done can be a huge boost towards you wanting to exercise more and achieve your goals if you’re starting from a place where you’re not already inhibited.

Better Exercise

It’s a common misconception that veins with problems will simply go away on their own if you start to exercise on a regular basis. That isn’t true. While your body and circulatory system will definitely benefit from exercise, not all exercises are created equal and will be beneficial to vein health. We’d love to discuss which exercises and techniques are best for your situation and how to avoid doing further damage to veins.


A non-invasive vein examination before starting an exercise program has the potential to be lifesaving. This exam helps us to detect dangerous blood clots like Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) which can lead to Pulmonary Embolisms (PE). PE is when a clot breaks free from a vein and enters an artery. This condition can be life-threatening with as many as 100,000 deaths linked to PE a year. Knowing if you have DVT before starting an exercise program could save your life.
