ABSTRACT
Subjects both with and without varicose veins were questioned concerning their drinking habits Of 136 men with varicose veins, only 16 (12 per cent) were complete abstainers, and the median amount of alcohol consumption was 68 gm per day, the equivalent of 4 ‘shots’ of whiskey daily. Of 70 men with no venous enlargement, 30 (43 per cent) were complete abstainers, and the median amount of alcohol consumption was only 1 gm per day, the equivalent of 1 ‘shot’ of whiskey every other week. This difference was highly significant. The possible role of alcohol as one of the factors in the etiology of varicose veins was discussed.
