Hi Margret,

Varicose veins does affect certain groups of people more than the rest of the population.

In people who stand up for long intervals at work, they are predisposed to developing varicose veins.
Examples of such occupations are as follows:
1. Teachers.
2. Store clerks.
3. Bus conductors.
4. Domestic helps.
5. Hair dressers.
6. Railway guards.

Hope this helps
