There is no clear way to prevent varicose veins from forming. Staying lean and remaining active are recommended. Avoid prolonged sitting or standing. If needed, use compression hose to minimize lower extremity congestion.

Compression hose may be obtained over the counter, but for more severe disease, graduated compression hose with prescription strength compression may be recommended. Many sports stores are selling compression sleeves which may also provide similar benefit.
