When dealing with health issues, your family history can play a major factor. For varicose veins, this is no different. In fact, it is one of the main risk factors and is responsible for 80% of those who have the condition. But since you are unable to control your genetic makeup, it is best to always monitor symptoms, while taking any precautions possible. So if your mother has venous diseases, it is important to be aware and seek professional help or consultation. Other factors such as age, pregnancy, prolonged standing, and hormones can also contribute to symptoms.
