Can Deep Vein Thrombosis Be Prevented?
Many of the health risks we face on a daily basis can be prevented with lifestyle changes. Even severe or chronic diseases can be managed by making healthy choices. This is the case with deep vein thrombosis, though lifestyle changes may not be enough to completely eradicate your risk. For most, the best treatment is a combination of things that work together to prevent clots from forming, ensure if a clot does form it remains at its point of origin, and reduce your risk for future clotting. It is important you discuss any lifestyle changes or anything else you do to reduce your risk of deep vein thrombosis with your doctor.
The first line of defense for dealing with deep vein thrombosis is usually medication. If a blood clot is found, your doctor will want to take aggressive action to manage it. There are two types of medications that are used to treat deep vein thrombosis: the first is given intravenously and the other is oral. Typically, the intravenous medication is given only until the oral medication can take effect. Both medications are usually given on a temporary basis, though your doctor may renew your prescription if a new clot forms.
The most important thing you can do to prevent blood clots from forming is to stay active. Movement keeps the blood in your body active. The more it is able to circulate the less risk you have for clotting. If you are suffering from an illness or dealing with an injury, speak with your doctor about gentle, safe movements you can do during your recovery. If you are at risk for clotting, but otherwise healthy, be sure exercise is a part of your everyday routine.
In addition to making movement an important part of your daily routine, there are other changes you can make in your life that help reduce your risk. If you smoke, you need to stop as soon as possible. Speak with your doctor about a safe smoking cessation program if you have struggled to break the habit. It is also important to maintain a healthy weight. Obesity increases your risk for blood clots. Share any lifestyle changes with your doctor, but know that most will be recommended when creating a treatment plan for deep vein thrombosis.
Understanding Your Risk
Perhaps the most important thing you can do to prevent deep vein thrombosis and other issues with clotting is to understand your risk. If you know you are at risk for suffering from a clotting problem, you need to be active about managing your health.
