Katie’s Story Part 2: Vein Disease & Pregnancy

Nice Living with Dr. Kamran Podcast Episode 11 Artwork

Episode Description

In part two of this two part episode of Nice Living with Dr. Kamran, our show’s host and renowned vascular expert, Dr. Kamran Goudarzi will share what made one patient’s case unique and other aspects that are as it turns out, more common than many may imagine – such as the prevalence of vein disease among young people and expecting mothers.

Venous insufficiency and vein disease can affect individuals of all ages. The condition is often underdiagnosed and frequently undertreated. This is especially the case when it comes to individuals in their 20s, 30s, and 40s.

Should vein screenings be part of prenatal healthcare? Dr. Kamran Goudarzi believes so. He has witnessed the connection between changes in vascular health and pregnancy in many patients. Patients with poor venous health who become pregnant are at risk for developing vein related complications. With treatment, patients with venous insufficiency have overcome swollen, painful legs and varicose veins and reduce their risk for more serious complications like venous ulcers and blood clots.
