Yes, Celebrities Get Varicose Veins Too!

Fifty percent of American women will struggle with varicose veins in their lifetimes. And celebrities are not excluded from those statistics and are not immune to these. Many celebrities have been reported or rumored to have sought treatment for their varicose veins.

Keep reading to learn who some of these celebrities are.

Khloe Kardashian

In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner is seen recommending that her daughter, Khloe Kardashian, have sclerotherapy done to treat her varicose veins.

Britney Spears

Pop star Britney Spears sought treatment in 2012 for her venous disorder, after her two pregnancies. Pregnancy is one of the leading causes of varicose veins. In Britney’s case, multiple pregnancies could have played a part and increased her risk of developing varicose veins.

Serena Williams

In 2011, Serena Williams developed a pulmonary embolism due to deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Since varicose veins can be precursors to blood clots, it is possible that Serena Williams suffered from varicose veins as well.  

Sydney Leroux

Pro soccer star Sydney Leroux Dwyer is an Olympic gold medalist and a forward for FC Kansas City in the National Women’s Soccer League. Dwyer admitted to having varicose veins during her pregnancy. Developing varicose veins during a pregnancy is very common. They happen when the uterus puts additional pressure on the large vein (the inferior vena cava) which carries blood back to the heart from your feet and legs.

Kristin Davis

Although she never admitted to having undergone treatment for varicose veins, actress Kristin Davis, best known as Charlotte from the popular HBO series, Sex and the City, was rumored to have done so in 2008 after filming a movie based on the show. According to reports, she wasn’t very happy with how her legs looked on camera and chose to seek treatment.

Emma Thompson

In the early 2000s, movie star Emma Thompson admitted to having varicose veins and treated them.

Debunking Some Of Varicose Veins Myths

For many of these celebrities, some will attribute the cause of their varicose veins to their use of high heels or in the case of athletes like Serena Williams and Sydney Leroux, to their rigorous fitness routines. But these two factors as mere myths. The truth is that wearing your favorite heels or lifting weights at the gym do not increase your risks of developing varicose veins. 

The real risk factors associated with varicose veins are:

  • Age
  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Family history
  • Standing for long periods of time

Don’t Ignore Your Varicose Veins

If left untreated, varicose veins can lead to more severe problems. It is very important that even if your varicose veins are not painful that you still seek treatment by a physician specializing in vascular conditions such as varicose veins.
