The Ins & Outs of Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic Venous Insufficiency can be one of the more aesthetically displeasing sites to the eye.  Go to google images and see for yourself.  If you are someone who has it, or you have diabetes so there is the chance of receiving these vein symptoms, it’s time to get some crucial context and background information on chronic venous insufficiency.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency, as the term implies, is a circulatory system issue where your veins aren’t allowing blood to properly flow back to your heart.  Jilianne Rose, the Clinical Director for the Advanced Vein Institute of Arizona, gave a speech about venous insufficiency.  She mentioned that the veins are like “stretching a rubber band out”.  You can only stretch a rubber band out so many times until you lose its elasticity.  Once the veins become weak and dilated, the veins will always remain stretched out in that way.  Once your veins, or the “rubber bands”, are stretched out like that, it’ll create pools of blood in the veins causing symptoms like cramps and itching.
