- Nearly 23% of us adults have varicose veins
- If you include spider veins and reticular veins, then nearly 80% of men and 85% of women have vein issues
- Varicose veins affect 22 million women and 11 million men between the ages of 40-80
- 2 million of the men and women who have vein issues will develop chronic venous insufficiency or venous ulcers.
