What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are a common condition of the blood vessels characterized by swollen, enlarged, and twisted veins visible beneath the skin’s surface. Most frequently occurring in the legs and feet, these veins can range from dark purple to blue. Though varicose veins can be unsightly, they often pose more than just a cosmetic problem; they can lead to discomfort, pain, and sometimes severe medical issues related to the circulatory system.

A healthy vein allows blood to flow smoothly back to the heart through a series of one-way valves. In a varicose vein, these valves malfunction, allowing blood to accumulate, leading to enlargement and a twisted, rope-like appearance. While smaller veins are often red or purple, more prominent varicose veins tend to be bluish.


Are Varicose Veins Genetic?

While varicose veins can be influenced by factors like age, weight, and lifestyle, there could also be a genetic component.

Research on Genetic Markers

Studies on the genetic aspects of varicose veins have mainly focused on symptoms of specific disorders of the blood vessels (like Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome). Previous research indicates that changes in genes like FOXC2, thrombomodulin (THBD), and desmuslin (SYNM) could contribute to varicose veins by affecting how veins function. However, these investigations have generally involved small sample sizes, ranging from 18 to 700 participants, and there needs to be more follow-up studies to confirm these findings.

A 2019 Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS), including nearly 10,000 cases and 300,000 controls, identified 30 genetic locations strongly linked with varicose veins. The most notable associations were found in the intron region of CASZ1 (rs1112165), previously implicated in blood pressure, and in the 16q24 region, where the PIEZO1 gene is located.

CASZ1 Gene

In the past few years, multiple GWAS have been carried out, focusing specifically on varicose veins in the lower limbs. The initial study was undertaken by 23andMe and involved European subjects who self-reported having varicose veins. This was succeeded by another GWAS that used clinically verified German cohorts. More recently, a validation study on the key findings from both studies, using independent samples from Russia and the UK Biobank, was also done. 


The most compelling association was with rs11121615, a variant initially identified in the 23andMe study. This single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is situated within an intron of the Castor Zinc CASZ1 gene, but its functional impact remains uncertain.


The association of both the CASZ1 and the PIEZO1 gene was confirmed in a significant and perhaps largest GWAS to date, conducted in 2022, focusing on surgically confirmed varicose vein cases. Another study found uncommon protein-truncating variants (PTVs) in the PIEZO1 gene that were linked to the occurrence of varicose veins. The findings indicate that while rare, these PTVs in PIEZO1 could serve as potent genetic risk factors for varicose veins.

Non-Genetic Risk Factors of Varicose Veins

While genetics can play a significant role in developing varicose veins, various non-genetic factors can also contribute. Recognizing these factors can help individuals take preventive measures. Here’s a closer look at some of the most prevalent non-genetic risk factors.


As people age, their risk of developing varicose veins increases. The valves in the veins weaken over time, making it more challenging to maintain proper blood flow. While you can’t stop aging, being aware of this risk can help you take preventive steps.


During pregnancy, blood volume increases, but blood flow from the legs to the pelvis decreases. This circulatory change is designed to support the growing fetus but can also result in enlarged veins in the legs.


Carrying excess weight puts additional pressure on the veins, which can lead to varicose veins. The extra weight can also exacerbate existing conditions and make it more challenging for the veins to pump blood back to the heart.

Sedentary Lifestyle

A lack of physical activity can impair blood circulation, increasing the risk of developing varicose veins. Regular exercise helps improve blood flow and can mitigate the risk.


Jobs that require prolonged standing or sitting can inhibit proper blood circulation and contribute to the formation of varicose veins. If your job requires long periods of immobility or air travel, taking breaks to move around is essential.

Previous Medical History

If you’ve had blood clots, injuries that affect the veins, or surgery that alters the blood flow in your legs, you may be at higher risk for varicose veins.

How To Tell If You Have Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins can manifest in various symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. Recognizing these signs and symptoms early can help you take the necessary steps to manage the condition effectively.

Visual Indicators

The most evident symptom of varicose veins is their visual appearance. The veins appear enlarged, swollen, and twisted, often with a blue or dark purple color. They are usually visible under the skin and are most commonly found in the legs and feet.

Physical Discomfort

  • This can be especially pronounced after long periods of standing or sitting.
  • Burning Sensation: Some individuals experience a burning or throbbing feeling around the area where the varicose veins appear.
  • Muscle Cramping: Muscle cramps, particularly at night, can occur in the legs with varicose veins.

Itching: There may be an itching sensation around the vein or the surrounding skin.

Skin Changes

Over time, untreated varicose veins can lead to changes in the skin around them. This may include:

  • Dry or Thinning Skin: The skin over the veins may become thin, itchy, and discolored.
  • Inflammation: The skin can become red and inflamed, indicative of dermatitis, a common side effect of varicose veins.
  • Ulcers: In severe cases, prolonged venous insufficiency can lead to the formation of ulcers, mainly near the ankles.


  • Bleeding: The veins close to the skin may sometimes rupture and cause minor bleeding.
  • Thrombophlebitis: In some cases, the varicose veins can become painful and inflamed, signaling a blood clot known as thrombophlebitis.

Aggravating Factors

Certain activities or conditions can exacerbate the symptoms, such as:

  • Prolonged Standing or Sitting: Being in the same position for long durations can worsen the symptoms.
  • Heat: Hot weather or warm temperatures can dilate the veins and make the symptoms more noticeable.
  • Menstrual Cycle: Some women report that their symptoms worsen during their menstrual cycle due to hormonal fluctuations.


Understanding the signs and symptoms of varicose veins is crucial for early diagnosis and effective management. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is advisable to consult a healthcare provider for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan.

When To Worry About Varicose Veins?

Immediately consult your healthcare provider about your varicose veins if they become painful, if the skin around them changes, or if you start to develop sores or rashes near them. Another red flag is if the veins feel warm or the skin around them becomes discolored. These could be signs of a more serious issue like a blood clot or infection that needs immediate medical attention.


Further, if there is swelling in your legs or ankles, severe and unexplained pain, or if the veins start to bleed, consult a healthcare provider as soon as possible. These symptoms could indicate complications that may require prompt medical treatment.

How To Prevent Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins can cause discomfort and may even lead to more serious health complications. Prevention is always better than cure, and in the case of varicose veins, there are several steps one can take to reduce the risk or slow down their development. Below are some of the most effective prevention methods, divided into key categories for better understanding.

Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle changes are the cornerstone of preventing varicose veins. Such changes can include:

Regular Exercises

Physical activity, especially leg exercises like walking, jogging, and swimming, can help improve blood circulation and strengthen the veins.

Consider Weight Management

Extra pressure on veins, particularly in the legs, can increase the risk of developing varicose veins. A balanced weight can help reduce this strain, although it’s important to note that weight is just one of many factors that could contribute to varicose veins. Consult your healthcare provider for a personalized plan.

Posture and Positioning

Positioning your body throughout the day can significantly affect your vein health.

Avoid Prolonged Standing or Sitting

Standing or sitting for long periods can cause blood to pool in the legs, increasing blood pressure on the veins. Make it a habit to move around every 30 minutes.

Elevate Your Legs

Elevating your legs above heart level encourages blood flow back towards the heart when resting.

Footwear Choices

The shoes you wear can have a surprisingly significant impact on your vein health.

Choose Low-Heeled Shoes

Low-heeled shoes work your calf muscles more, which is better for your veins. Avoid high heels whenever possible.

Use Compression Stockings

For those at high risk of developing varicose veins, such as people with a family history or those who stand for long periods, compression stockings can help. These stockings apply pressure to the legs and aid in blood circulation.

Dietary Changes

Your diet plays a critical role in the health of your veins.

High-Fiber and Low-Salt Diet

A diet rich in fiber can help prevent constipation, which can contribute to varicose veins. Meanwhile, a low-salt diet helps to reduce water retention, thus decreasing the pressure on your veins.

Stay Hydrated

Proper hydration can improve blood circulation, reducing the risk of blood clots and varicose veins.

Regular Health Checks

Consult Your Doctor

If you’re at higher risk for developing varicose veins due to your family history or lifestyle, it’s important to consult a healthcare provider for a personalized prevention plan. Regular check-ups can help in early detection and management.

Genetic Testing 101: What and How Much is a DNA Test?

DNA analysis


If you’ve ever wondered about your family tree, you might be glad to know that your DNA will tell you more than just who you are related to. While finding out if you are a descendant of a famous historical figure sounds super cool, there’s so much more to learn about yourself, your body, your mind, and even your potential with the right DNA test

What is Genetic Testing?

Genetic testing can give you a myriad of information about your nutrition, wellness, your personality, andeven your genetic likelihood of developing certain conditions. The tests look for changes, also known as mutations or variants, in your genes, chromosomes, and proteins to determine unique traits or changes in your current traits that can give you insights into your well-being,your food response, your body’s ability to absorb certain vitamins and minerals, and even why you have certain behavioral traits. 


Some genetic tests are done by drawing blood and examining it, others are via cheek swabs of your saliva and lad-testing it. The results can vary from a few days to a few weeks depending on how detailed your genetic testing results are. If you have mutations in your DNA test results, the likelihood of your family members having the same mutations increases because you share the same genes. 


If you’re ready to take a DNA test and gain personalized insights into how you can start taking action on your overall wellness, check out LifeDNA’s plans today. 

The Benefits of Taking a DNA Test

Genetic testing has a ton of incredible benefits. Knowledge is power, thus finding out your genetic predispositions towards certain traits can help you better manage your diet, lifestyle, and personal habits. Below are some of the most powerful benefits of DNA testing. 

Discover your unique genetic traits

Many couples planning to have a family want to be as prepared as possible. Taking a DNA test individually can help determine if one or both parents have genetic mutations that can be passed on to their offspring and the likelihood of these mutations growing or increasing. Genetic testing can also help determine some physical, mental, and cognitive traits of your future offspring.


LifeDNA offers over 120 unique traits on nutrition, fitness, vitamins, wellness, personality, skincare, and more. If you’re ready to discover your unique traits based on DNA, click here to get started. 

Identify your genetic likelihood for certain conditions

A DNA test can help your trusted healthcare professional make more informed decisions and recommendations about your well-being. Genetic testing can help some individuals identify potential risks and focus on prevention and treatment. Consulting a medical professional for advice after seeing your results can also give you the peace of mind you might need. 

Remember, LifeDNA’s reports do not diagnose any diseases. We do recommend that you consult your healthcare professional for traits results that may need attention. 

Assessing if a pregnancy or future pregnancy is safe

Some DNA test results can also help parents or future parents make decisions about having children. A prenatal genetic test can help determine if the fetus is growing normally or if there are any abnormalities present while in the womb. 

Screening newborn babies for certain treatable conditions


Some genetic testing services offer newborn screening one to two days after birth. This test can identify genetic disorders early at the earliest chance possible so that treatment can be started as early as possible.

Limitations of Genetic Testing

DNA testing can tell you a lot about yourself and your family history. While it is a useful tool for determining many hereditary conditions that you might be afflicted with, there are still certain limitations to genetic testing. For one, a genetic mutation in your results does not automatically mean you will develop a certain disease or that you will pass it on to your offspring.


Genetic testing also cannot tell you if you will show symptoms of a certain condition, the severity of the symptoms, how progressive the disease will be, or which course of treatments is guaranteed to treat or cure the condition. Only a medical professional can advise you about all of these. 


Geneticists and genetic counselors are qualified to talk more about what a particular test covers, what to expect for the scope of results, and even help you decide whether undergoing testing is the best choice for you. They can also help you deal with your results and understand them in a more objective manner before going to a medical professional for diagnosis.

How to Get Quick DNA Test Results

If you are familiar with genetic testing, you have probably heard of or even tried other DNA testing companies such as 23andMe, Ancestry, or MyHeritage. With LifeDNA, you have the option to upload your past genetic test results from these companies and unlock a ton of other powerful information hidden in your DNA.

In our customers’ own words:

My jaw dropped. I couldn’t believe some of the information they get from your DNA. It was like looking in a genetic mirror and fully understanding yourself. I was amazed.

Christian V


The Health & Personality Report really opened my eyes to some things. I’ve always been able to work more hours than other people, but now I know it’s because I have a high tolerance for work-related exhaustion.

Diana B


The generated report based on DNA data is very detailed, explained in an understandable language, and beautifully presented. Navigating through the environment of the website is easy and a pleasant experience. Some lifestyle advice are given on many aspects of the analyzed data, which is really helpful!

Kiana S

2. Our reports are actionable: it’s clear which steps you need to take to improve your health

Owning your genetic information is great, but if you don’t know what to do with it, it’s kind of pointless. 

For instance, you might carry a double MTHFR mutation.  This would have a big impact on how your body processes toxins.

So, on top of letting you know your MTHFR status, we’ll tell you the foods you need to eat and the nutrients you need to maximize to work around it. We take this approach to all the genetic markers we look at.

I have really struggled with weight loss and exercise my whole life. The Nutrition & Fitness Report showed me exactly what I was doing wrong, and it really changed everything. I was following the most popular diet in the world, but it turns out, it doesn’t work for my DNA! And now I’m on the right track. I’ve never felt better.

Christopher D

Very good, simple and complete, it helped me to better choose my supplements.

Louigee M

Awesome service that gives a deeper insight into how to better improve your overall health. Quick and easy product to use with an excellent customer service team. Thank you LifeDNA for helping me better understand myself and my health!

Chad M.

3. Our reports are insightful and interesting: you’ll get to know yourself on a whole new level

Out of all the feedback we get, we hear this one the most. 

We think finding out about yourself should be a fascinating experience, so we created reports that give you real insight into the impact your DNA can have on your life and health.

Moreover, it’s our ambition to make people everywhere healthier and happier. The way we see it, if people don’t want to read their reports because they’re boring or irrelevant to their lives, they won’t make any changes to their diet or lifestyle either. 

Fulfilling our mission means making insightful reports.


This was a very interesting and unique experience! I highly recommend it to everyone who has done the DNA testing. Everything that it discovered were things that I thought were so or maybe didn’t even think about, but all of the results were spot on! I loved it so much that I plan on having the other kids in my family do this too! Thank you, LifeDNA!

Karen P

I am really enjoying all the reports I get from LifeDNA. There are so many interesting things to learn about yourself.


I love the interesting and useful information that has been gleaned from my DNA. I especially enjoy the health related information, and the indicated tendencies towards or away from various maladies. Much of it was strangely on target with strengths, weaknesses, and health trends I have observed in myself over the years.


4. We have excellent customer service, and respond to complaints and solve problems quickly

If you’re happy, we’re happy. 

We’re always looking to improve everything we do, so if something isn’t right, we’ll fix it. We know how frustrating it is to ask for help and wait too long to get it.

In 2003, the Human Genome Project completed its thirteen year task of sequencing every single human gene. 

Since then, hundreds of genetic testing companies have sprung  into life to ride the wave, each with a mission to unlock human genetic potential.

The problem is, they’re all different. So how do you choose the best one for you? Read on for a quick rundown of a few of the main players on the market: 

  • LifeDNA
  • DNAfit
  • 23andMe
  • Fitness Genes

Here’s the TL;DR…

  • LifeDNA has a 360-degree view on maximising your potential: Right now, LifeDNA is developing an algorithm to analyze your environment and lifestyle at the same time as your genetics, to give you a truly personalized road map to optimum wellbeing


  • DNAfit’s focus on how to eat and exercise will satisfy the most hardened health nut. However, this kind of advice needs environmental input too: the diet and fitness regime that works when you’re 25 won’t work in the same way when you’re 75.
  • 23andMe is the biggest and oldest player on the scene, with the customers and financial clout to boot. But while they might have the most data at their fingertips, they don’t necessarily have the insights to match
  • Fitness Genes’ reports give detailed information on the kind of workouts and exercise you should be doing to make the most out of the body you were born with, but their advice is based on the relatively low number of genetic traits that they analyze.


CEO Cyril Moukarzel and chairman Steve Markowitz founded LifeDNA in 2017, from Honolulu, Hawaii, where the company still operates today.

From the outset, Cyril and Steve wanted LifeDNA to move with the inexorable pace of genetic science, constantly working new discoveries into their algorithm so their customers and members can maximize their health and wellness with the very latest DNA insights.

Our purpose is to make everyone healthier, happier, and stronger. To do that, we take your ‘environmental’ data like age, health status and lifestyle and combine that with your genetic information to give you a truly 360-degree view on your potential.

We do this through six extensive, easily actionable, constantly updated ‘live’ reports covering more than 120 unique genetic traits.

How does it work? What do you get?

You can get the full range of reports instantly if you’ve already taken a DNA test from 23andMe,, or MyHeritage. Just upload your raw DNA data to LifeDNA’s easy-to-use platform.

If you’ve never taken a DNA test, you can also get a kit with a cheek swab sent to your home.

As our name suggests, LifeDNA is with you for life: our platinum membership gives you lifetime access to:

  • Nine fully-comprehensive, constantly updated reports on everything from diet to fitness, fertility and personality 
  • Quarterly consultations with experts to get the best out of all the latest research
  • A global community of users and scientists through our private Facebook group
  • A future-focused service for the digital age with reports based on a dynamic algorithm created by our genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics speci

Our world-leading specialists bring out new reports and traits at a rate that matches the pace of genetic science.

DNAfit is a genetic company founded in 2013 by South African Avi Lasarow. Based on genetic analysis, it creates personalized diet and fitness plans. The company also has expert scientists and dieticians on their team to offer advice to people who want it. 

How does it work? What do you get?

If you order the DNA testing kit online, you get a saliva swab delivered to your home. Once you’ve sent it off, it goes to an accredited laboratory to produce DNA sequencing results within 15 days. You then access your results using your login on the website. 

You can choose from:

  • Diet Fit ($189), which gives actionable nutritional information, a personalized meal planner with a nutrition report and recommendations for either a low carb diet, low fat diet, or Mediterranean diet.
  • Health Fit ($249) is a more expensive service that provides the nutritional information found in Diet Fit plus extras like a health report where you get insight into traits like your predisposition to stress.
  • There’s also the CircleDNA test which gives a more comprehensive analysis, with a price to match.

DNAfit Cost

They have a range of plans, starting from $189 for the Diet Fit plan going up to $629 for the CircleDNA

DNAfit Privacy & Security

The company has a strict privacy policy. Your data is stored under anonymous IDs, and your sample is destroyed after use. That means your raw data is not available for you to download afterwards, though.

They say that they ‘require your permission to share the results’ with somebody outside the laboratory. They do not sell your information to third parties. 

Advantages of DNAfit

  • You can get reports on both your health and fitness potential
  • You can upload your 23andme raw data, for a fee
  • A one-off coaching session comes with the price
  • There is a money-back guarantee (subject to terms and conditions). 
  • There are no ongoing subscription fees as they don’t offer membership

Disadvantages of DNAfit

  • You can’t upload your raw DNA data to use through other companies
  • Sometimes the health recommendations are generic

The company works with several large pharmaceutical companies, which may be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your stance on sharing data.

How does it work? What do you get?

Their lab extracts DNA from cells in your saliva sample, then processes the DNA on a genotyping chip that reads hundreds of thousands of locations in your genome. After they analyze your genetic data, they generate your personalized reports.

23andMe Cost

23andMe offers Ancestry and Health reports separately. You can buy an Ancestry report for $99 or an Ancestry + Health report for $199. You need to collect a saliva sample for both.

23andMe Privacy & Security

The company only shares your data if you give them permission. 

According to their site: 

‘Your data is fiercely protected by security practices that are regularly reviewed and updated. Your genetic information deserves the highest level of security, because without security, you can’t have privacy. 23andMe employs software, hardware, and physical security measures to protect your data.’

Advantages of 23andMe

  • They have a good range of genetic predisposition and carrier status reports.
  • FDA authorization: 23andMe is one of the few that actually has FDA-authorized reports, a factor that makes it stand out among competitors. 
  • If you give 23andMe permission to share your DNA for research purposes, your DNA could be used to help develop new treatments for diseases. 
  • Discounts available: 23andMe often has special sales and discounts that reduce costs. 


Disadvantages of 23andMe

  • It might take three to five weeks to process your kit and send your results. 
  • Little information or insight into the findings: Their reports are really just stark data, with few actionable insights.
  • 23andMe’s health predisposition and carrier reports only test for specific variants, which may be a problem for people of non-European ethnicities.
  • Customer service issues: Reviews report problems with 23andMe’s customer service.
