National Vascular Disease Awareness Month
  • 08 Sep, 2022

September is National Vascular Disease Awareness Month. Vascular diseases, which include arterial disease, venous disease, and blood clots, are serious public health issues. The focus on vascular disease draws attention to one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

Our team of skilled healthcare professionals at Grace Medical Centre aims to raise awareness about the innumerable types of vascular disease, the warning signs of vein disease, and the treatment choices available to you because these disorders can result in serious and unwelcome repercussions.

Vascular Disease: Understanding

Any disorder that has an impact on your body's extensive network of arteries and veins is referred to as a vascular disease. Vascular diseases can affect people of any age, gender, or race, but some risk factors can make you more likely to experience blood vessel issues. Your risk of having one of these illnesses is increased by your age, family history of vascular disease, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and a few underlying health issues.

Vascular diseases include the following:

Arterial diseases, such as peripheral artery disease and renal artery disease

Venous disease, including varicose veins, spider veins, and chronic venous insufficiency

Blot clots, including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis

Aortic aneurysm

Blood clotting disorders


Vascular diseases can affect the health and function of your body in a number of different ways. Some may require immediate treatment (such as an aortic aneurysm) while others can slowly worsen over time. Regardless, any type of vascular disease should be taken seriously by doctors.


What Grace Medical Center Is Doing to Confront Vascular Disease

The veins are an important part of your body and carry oxygen-poor blood back to your heart so it can be reoxygenated before being cycled through your body again. Here at GMC, our team focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating venous diseases.

Venous diseases include blood clots, spider veins, varicose veins, deep vein clotting, venous ulcers, and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) these conditions can develop if your veins are damaged. It's important to treat venous diseases as soon as you spot the warning signs.

Why Awareness Is Important: Getting the Treatment You Require

Vascular Disease Awareness Month provides an opportunity to revisit your risk factors and vein health. If you do spot any warning signs, you can start treatment now to avoid the more serious complications of untreated venous diseases.
