It’s Halloween and everyone dresses up as vampires and ghosts. I see stickers that say “Great veins”!! It reminds me of when I have to get blood drawn; that’s what I am usually told. But I always say that even though my arms have great veins, what is really important are checking the veins in my legs! The phlebotomist usually looks at me funny and then tells me they rarely need to draw blood from a leg.But our vein health in our legs says so much about our entire body health. Illinois Vein Specialists know all about this and have been leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose vein health for over 10 years!
