Please don’t let this terrible pun you are about to read be in vein.
Okay, now that we’ve got that out of our (vascular) system, please listen varicosely.
Alright, that was the last one, we promise.
All (bad) jokes aside, as a vein center treating vascular disease in New Jersey, we take our jobs seriously.
National Vascular Disease Awareness Month occurs every September, and we don’t think of it as a time to try out our horrible standup. Instead, we hope to capture your attention momentarily and leave you with some valuable information to help you and your loved ones.
Your circulatory system is a vast network of arteries and veins that carry blood throughout the different organs of your body. You need your circulatory system to function correctly to sustain blood flow to your organs; otherwise, the result could be a form of vascular disease.
Vascular Disease Details
- Vascular diseases affect the body’s blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and lymphatic vessels.
- Vascular diseases often share common risk factors with cardiovascular diseases, such as smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle.
- Vascular diseases can manifest with various signs and symptoms, depending on the condition and the blood vessels affected. It’s important to note that many vascular diseases may initially present with subtle or no symptoms, making regular check-ups and awareness essential.
Early detection and intervention are crucial for managing vascular diseases effectively.
You can better manage and alleviate the symptoms of vascular disease with appropriate medical treatment. The earlier you become aware of these issues, the sooner you can begin to make lifestyle adjustments to improve your health, prolong your life, and enjoy a better quality of life.
Some quick advice that everyone should follow is to engage in regular exercise, eat a balanced diet, and if you smoke, stop. Talk to your healthcare provider about your risk factors and stay proactive about your vascular health.
