Because of a sedentary lifestyle during isolation in Russia has increased the number of patients with thrombosis of superficial and deep veins. About it NEWS.ru said the interviewed doctors phlebologists.
Over the past two months several times increased the number of people with the aggravated problems with the blood vessels, said phlebologist Tatiana Vatolina. Her colleague Sergey Drobyazko calls the other figures. According to him, the growth was 20-30 percent.
Drobiazko said that in the norm the muscles need to move through the veins of hundreds of liters of blood per day, but if a person sits there all the time, most of the muscles does not work and does not perform the function of “pump”. Because of this, there is a thickening of the blood, formed clots, increases the risk of thrombosis. The risk in this case are older people, who due to age slowed circulation.
Another result of the reduced activity — varicose veins, added Tatiana Vatolina. Without treatment the disease may eventually lead to thrombosis.
