Risk Factors

Vein Disorder Risk Factors

Risk FactorsCommon risk factors for vein disease include:

• Genetics
• Your job
• Age
• Gender
• Hormones
• Prolonged sitting or standing

Family history of vein disease is one of the primary factors that can elevate your risk. People who sit or stand for extended periods of time, including that time spent sitting or standing at work, are also at a greater risk for developing vein disease. Additionally, women are more likely to incur vein disease than men due to hormone fluctuations during pregnancies and menopause.
