There does not seem to be a direct link between diabetes and varicose veins, but because the two diseases share risk factors, it is not uncommon for a patient with one of these diseases to experience the other later down the line.
There are a lot of questions about varicose veins that remain to be answered, so it is understandable that individuals suffering from other diseases that can have negative effects on health, like diabetes, may be worried that they too might have to add venous disease to their existing list to health concerns.
One important thing to note is like complications that can occur during surgery for diabetics from physicians that are not trained properly on the disease or the appropriate treatment modalities, it is very important to consult a vein disease specialist to ensure the most appropriate measures are taken. It's important for a physician to consider the safest and most effective treatments options for an individual patient, but more importantly having the training and expertise in the related field with proven success rates is key.
