Varicose veins are more likely as we age and it is believed that it is a combination of factors including loss of valve integrity and loss of calf muscle bulk - the older we get, the weaker our calf muscles get- this condition is called sarcopenia - so keep your calf muscles strong so that they can effectively pump venous blood out of the legs and keep your veins healthy. I also recommedn Veinamin product for prevention of venous disease.
Thank you for your question. You can get them at any age, and pregnancy/hormonal changes/genetics are the big causes for females, but men also get them. Standing on your feet for long periods can also cause them. I hope this helps.
