It is unlikely that an underlying health problem has caused varicose veins. The only thing to be cautious about would be if your varicose veins are clotting. If you find your veins clotting then it would definitely be recommended that you visit your GP before receiving treatment to rule out any underlying health issues that could be causing the clotting.
At The Private Clinic, we offer a free ultrasound scan at your varicose vein consultation which will help your vascular surgeon to see if there are any underlying issues that need to be dealt with before your start treatment.
