Can Poor Circulation Be A Serious Concern?

Because blood flow supports crucial bodily functions, circulation problems require special concern. In addition to potentially indicating more serious medical conditions, poor circulation may provoke deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

DVT can occur when a vein is damaged or blood flow stops because of poor circulation, leading to a sudden, deep blood clot in the leg, accompanied by severe pain.

If you are obese and/or over age 40 and have poor circulation, you are at a higher risk for developing life-threatening DVT.
