varicose veins caused by soda?

hi everyone,

I have been suffering from varicose veins for a while now and
i just read from this post ( ) that drinking too much soda can cause varicose veins.

is this true? i am wondering if anyone else thought or heard of this as well. i guess this is just one more thing to worry about. :( thanks



No responses?

I went to the doctor a few ago and asked him about VV and soda. he doesn't think soda has anything to do with vv, but i'm still kind of worried.

please anyone have any thoughts? thanks

Ok, nevermind, i've been looking around again and this doctor as a question and answer page on VV ( ) and from the looks of it, soda does not cause or make VV worse.

i'm still worried, but for now i guess i have some peace of mind. =/

any thoughts? anyone?

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
