viens showing all over my legs
Jun 22, 2005

is there any thing i can do about the veins in my legs?is there any kind of surgery?

Response from Dr. Henry

Prominent veins in the setting of HIV treatment can be due to subcutaneous fat loss. Your HIV specialist is the best person to evaluate what your options are. Varicose veins are fairly common is the general population. There are an increasing number of interventions (from compression hosiery to injections to surgery) that are available for that condition.KH
