Is Deep Vein Thrombosis Related to Other Health Problems?
Deep vein thrombosis occurs when blood clots form in deep veins in the body, usually in the legs. It can be a very serious problem, especially if a clot dislodges and travels to the lungs. Though it is possible for anyone to develop deep vein thrombosis, there are other health problems that often go hand-in-hand with clotting problems. If you suffer from any of these issues, it is important to understand your increased risk for deep vein thrombosis.
Obesity increases your risk for a number of diseases and conditions, and deep vein thrombosis is no exception. An overweight body is at a greater risk for developing blood clots. Excess body weight puts pressure on veins. Obesity is also an indication that a person is not moving enough, further increasing the risk for blood clots. Dropping excess body weight is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health and reduce your risk of numerous diseases and disorders. Speak with your doctor as soon as possible about creating a sensible weight loss and fitness plan.
Illnesses or Injuries that Leave You Bedridden
The less you move the greater your risk for developing blood clots. If you suffer from an injury that leaves you immobile, even if it is only for a short period of time, you must do what you can to keep blood circulating in your body. If you have a chronic condition that leaves you immobile, you and your physical therapist can discuss ways to reduce your risk for blood clotting problems.
One of the most common health issues related to clotting is surgery. Surgery can damage veins, increasing the likelihood of a clot. Anesthesia slows the flow of blood through your body, further increasing the risk for clotting. Before undergoing a surgical procedure, speak with your doctor about the risks and know the warning signs of a clot. If you suspect a clot has formed, contact your doctor immediately.
Some types of cancer increase a person’s risk for deep vein thrombosis. There are also certain cancer treatments known for triggering blood clotting issues. If you have been diagnosed with cancer, speak with your doctors about your increased risk. Monitoring your circulation and taking preventative measures to prevent clots may be an important part of your treatment program.
Unfortunately, one of the happiest times of your life also includes an increased risk for deep vein thrombosis. Pregnancy is not a health “problem,” but it changes your body, at least for nine months. The heightened risk for blood clots continues for about six to eight weeks following the birth of a child.
