Can Spironolactone (steroid) treatment make veins more visible?
Vein Treatments -3 answers
I've been on a high dose of Spironolactone for adult acne for the past 2.5 years. Spironolactone affects the levels of aldosterone in the body and I also read it's a steroid. Now that some veins have become more visible on my legs/abdomen, I wonder if this medication had be contributed to this? Would taking a smaller dose sort out the problem?

Is closure an option for me?
Vein Treatments -6 answers
I am 40 yrs old and have varicose and spider veins. I also have discoloring and hardening around my ankle. After years, my eighth knee surgery was a replacement but the leg still swells, is painful, and cramps at night. I know my valves are bad from previous clots as I have a hyper coag state. No one seems to understand. All this said, is closure an option for me?

My legs have been achy and heavy. I had an ultrasound at a vascular doctor's office by a tech. She told me that my right leg has severe superficial valve insufficiency. As for the left leg, the superficial valve has moderate insufficiency. I have 3 children; she said that could have contributed to this. Anyway, I'm 29 and really scared now. How will this affect me long term? And I feel to young for this! Is this common? What is the best procedure?

Is there a procedure that can remove all of my remaining varicose veins?
Vein Treatments -4 answers
I had varicose veins when I was pregnant with my two children. My legs hurt and my veins would protrude. As soon as I had my son, I had the same problem; they hurt a lot when I was standing. I sought treatment from a doctor two years later and he injected my veins. Six months after that my legs hurt but the veins were no longer protruding. I still have more varicose veins because he didn't remove all of them. Is there a procedure that would remove all of my varicose veins?
