Who Is Affected by Deep Vein Thrombosis?
Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot forms in the body. Anyone can experience the formation of a clot, but some people are more likely to be affected than others. Who needs to worry about deep vein thrombosis?
People with Blood Clotting Disorders
If you have a history of clotting issues your risk is increased for deep vein thrombosis. Your doctor may recommend tests to find serious problems, or he or she might suggest medication to prevent the formation of clots. Understanding your risks for clots helps you take action and prevent serious problems.
People with a Temporary or Permanent Disability
If you are immobilized for any reason your risk increases for blood clots. Blood circulation is important for preventing deep vein thrombosis. Unfortunately, when you are unable to move around, your circulation slows and blood tends to pool. If you are prone to clotting and you suffer an injury or illness that keeps you immobilized, you need to find ways to promote circulation. Speak with your doctor or physical therapist about gentle exercises you can do to keep the blood pumping in your body when you are unable to move.
People who are overweight suffer a greater risk for developing deep vein thrombosis. Obesity increases your risk for a variety of diseases, so do what you can to maintain a healthy weight. If your weight is a work in progress, make sure you get plenty of physical activity everyday to reduce your risk for developing blood clots.
People Who Have Recently Undergone Surgery
Surgery increases your risk for deep vein thrombosis. Veins can be damaged during surgical procedures and blood flow slows because of the anesthesia administered during the process. Compression socks are sometimes used after surgery to squeeze the legs and keep blood flowing at a healthy rate.
Cancer patients can also be affected by deep vein thrombosis. If you are battling cancer or undergoing any kind of cancer treatment, speak with your oncologist or primary care physician about preventing the formation of blood clots.
Sometimes the only thing that triggers deep vein thrombosis is age. As we get older, our risk increases for a variety of health problems, including blood clots. Understand the symptoms of deep vein thrombosis and contact your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms as you get older. If you have no other risk factors there is a better than average chance you will not be affected, but it is better to know what to look for so you can avoid serious problems from clotting.
