Round Rock doctor offers relief for those with a common ailment

A disease that's twice as common as heart disease and affects more than half the population... can lead to serious health problems. But a Central Texas doctor says he has an answer for those who suffer from it. Dr. Hamilton also says people most affected by vein disease are those who have a family history of it. He says if one parent has the disease, a child will have a 50 percent chance of having it. If both parents have it, that chance goes up to 90 percent. He notes that diabetics, people who are overweight and those who have jobs that require a lot of standing are also high on the list of those most prone to having vein disease. He adds that exercise can help and people who exercise regularly may avoid the symptoms, but still need to be careful if they have skin changes, like darkening of the skin or an itchy rash.
