Are You at Risk of CVD? Chronic Venous Disorders

1 out of 2 people will develop some form of CVD in their lifetime

With over 50% of adults at risk of CVD, understanding the causes is important. CVD is the result of everyday symptoms such as tired, aching or swollen legs​ or Varicose Veins, and can lead to problems such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, leg ulcers and other severe venous disorders. The root cause is deficient venous circulation and it can get progressively worse over time.

Don't dismiss the symptoms?

The most important thing to note is that much can be done to prevent and manage CVD so that it does not affect your health and overall quality of life.
