High Heels, Pregnancy, Kim Kardashian and Spider Veins

Kardashian_highheels

Kim Kardashian recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl that she and Kanye West named North. But, as reported during her pregnancy, there were concerns about her unhealthy habit of wearing too tight shoes … most notably high heels. The heath issue is venous disease. According to Dr. Jeffrey Alpern, founder and director of Vein Specialists of Arizona, agrees with Dr. Arthur Wisot who voiced his opinion in the article.

As reported in the National Enquirer, Dr. Arthur Wisot, a noted Los Angeles obstetrician who has not treated Kardashian said, “High heels are not a good idea during pregnancy because your center of gravity shifts and you lose your sense of balance. And, improper footwear can also lead to aching, enlarged spider veins.”

As Dr. Alpern explains, “Varicose and spider veins commence in your twenties to thirties, sometimes earlier and they never improve. Once a vein starts to malfunction, not pumping the blood upwards toward the heart, blood will start to pool and they will never function properly again unless treated by a qualified doctor.“

Testimonial from Dianemarie Collins:

“As a patient of Dr. Alpern, I can attest that my spider veins began the summer I turned 20 when I worked as a retail clerk. As a professional dancer, I never had that problem until I spent eight hours a day standing on my feet. “

SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON YOUR FEET? SORE LEGS OR FEET? SWOLLEN LEGS?

Dr. Alpern says that often men and women who spend time standing for long periods of time such as nurses, hairdressers, waiters/waitresses, cashiers, retail clerks, and even auto mechanics are more likely to experience venous disease like spider veins and varicose veins.
