What is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

In the condition of deep vein thrombosis, blood clots occur in the deep veins, that is the veins not on the surface of the skin. Deep vein thrombosis can develop in any part of the body. However, in most cases, it is seen that deep vein thrombosis occurs in the legs or the pelvic region. This happens probably because the lower body experiences more pressure than the upper part of the body. Deep vein thrombosis is a rather serious condition and if left untreated, can give rise to serious complications.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The doctor asks about the symptoms and carries out a thorough physical exam to look for areas of swelling, discolored skin, and soreness. If the doctor suspects the presence of an underlying blot clot, they ask for certain tests.

Deep vein thrombosis is usually diagnosed through a Doppler’s ultrasound. In Doppler’s ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are used to check the flow of blood through the veins. The ultrasound detects the blood flow and an impaired blood flow indicates the presence of blood clots in the vein.

The doctor may conduct a series of ultrasounds to check if the blood clot is growing or to look for new blood clots that may have formed.

Surgery

The doctor assesses the severity of the deep vein thrombosis and then suggests suitable treatment. In most cases, deep vein thrombosis is diagnosed in mild stages only. For treating such cases, the laser-based procedure is used.

Laser treatment for deep vein thrombosis uses a high-intensity laser beam for treating the blood clots in the veins. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve any cuts or incisions. The risk of postoperative complications is nil and the procedure is 100 percent safe.

Overview of deep vein thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot forms in a deep vein ( a vein that is not on the skin surface). Deep vein thrombosis is a very serious condition.

Diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis

The doctor discusses the symptoms and conducts a physical exam to check for areas of swelling, discoloration, and tenderness. Depending upon the likeliness of the blood clot, the doctor can conduct any of the following tests.

Usually, deep vein thrombosis is diagnosed by Doppler’s ultrasound. In Doppler’s ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are used to check the flow of blood through the veins. The ultrasound detects the blood flow and an impaired blood flow indicates the presence of blood clots in the vein.

The doctor may conduct a series of ultrasounds to check if the blood clot is growing or to look for new blood clots that may have formed.

Treatment of deep vein thrombosis

Ayurvedic treatment for deep vein thrombosis

Ayurveda considers deep vein thrombosis as an imbalance of Vata, Pitta and Rakta. The Ayurvedic treatment of deep vein thrombosis involves some medications. Some of the most common Ayurvedic medicines for deep vein thrombosis include:

  • Triphala kashayam

  • Navak Guggul

  • Aragvadadi kasayam

  • Guggulu tiktaka kasayam

  • Sahacaradi kasayam

  • Saddaranam curnam

  • Arjun kshirapak

  • Haritaki churna

  • Gokshur churna

In addition to medications, Ayurveda also uses certain external treatments like Lepanam, Abyangam, Medicated dhara, Leech therapy, Virechana, etc. for curing deep vein thrombosis.

Surgery for deep vein thrombosis

The doctor assesses the severity of the deep vein thrombosis and then suggests suitable treatment. In most cases, deep vein thrombosis is diagnosed in mild stages only. For treating such cases, the laser-based procedure is used.

Laser treatment for deep vein thrombosis uses a high-intensity laser beam for treating the blood clots in the veins. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve any cuts or incisions. The risk of postoperative complications is nil and the procedure is 100 percent safe.

Home remedies for deep vein thrombosis

Homeopathic medicines work on the symptoms of a disease. Some of the common homeopathic medicines are-

  • Vitamin E- Vitamin E acts as a blood thinner and thus prevents the coagulation of blood. Thinner blood is less prone to clotting. Therefore, Vitamin E plays a crucial role in preventing and improving deep vein thrombosis.

  • Ginger- Ginger is an excellent home remedy for deep vein thrombosis. The salicylate present in ginger makes the blood thinner so that it can flow smoothly. Ginger also breaks down fibrins that contribute to the development of deep vein thrombosis. Also, ginger keeps a check on cholesterol levels and prevents plaque from building in the veins, thereby ensuring proper blood circulation.

  • Turmeric- Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin which has anti-inflammatory, blood-thinning, and anti-coagulant properties. Curcumin also improves the functioning of the inner lining of the blood vessels, and thus regulates blood pressure and prevents blood clotting.

  • Garlic cloves- Garlic cloves and garlic powder is another great remedy for deep vein thrombosis. Garlic has anti-thrombotic properties, which means that it prevents the clotting of blood. In addition to this, garlic improves blood circulation and provides relief from the symptoms of deep vein thrombosis.

  • Cayenne pepper- Cayenne peppers have high salicylate contents. Therefore, cayenne peppers regulate the flow of blood and make the blood thinner, thereby preventing it from clotting. Also, cayenne peppers monitor cholesterol levels and blood pressure and thus maintain proper blood circulation throughout the body.

  • Omega-3 fatty acid- Omega-3 fatty acids play a major role in maintaining vein health and repairing of vein tissues. In addition to this, Omega-3 fatty acids keep the cholesterol and triglyceride levels in check. Therefore, Omega-3 fatty acids ensure proper flow of blood and thus prevent it from coagulating.

Diet for deep vein thrombosis

  • Whole grains such as oats, barley, brown rice, maize, etc

  • Have more fruits and vegetables

  • Lean protein such as chicken and fish

  • Avoid foods with excess salts and added sugar

  • Refrain from having unhealthy fats

Exercise for deep vein thrombosis

  • Regular and mild exercise is a great way to manage the existing blood clots and prevent new ones. Exercise stretches the lower body and provides relief from the pain and symptoms of deep vein thrombosis. Regular exercise also helps maintain proper body weight and thus improves the condition of deep vein thrombosis.

  • A 20-minute jog or walk can help in the condition. Aquatic exercises and swimming improve blood circulation throughout the body, thereby helping in DVT.

  • The only thing to keep in mind is that the intensity of exercises does not matter. The quality and quantity of exercise do.

Complications of deep vein thrombosis

When deep thrombosis occurs in legs, it may cause the following complications:

  • Intense pain in the legs

  • Damaged veins

  • Redness along with soreness in the affected area of the legs

  • Severe swelling in the legs

  • Bursting of veins in severe cases

  • Forming of ulcers

Prevention of deep vein thrombosis

  • Keep your blood pressure under control

  • If you are overweight, try losing those extra kilos

  • Quit smoking and avoid excessive alcohol consumption

  • Stay active and keep moving to ensure the proper flow of blood

  • While sitting, keep your legs stretched

  • Do not wear too tight clothes that may restrict blood flow
