Reminder Bank Holidays #NFSM is closed.
This year #NFSM has seen some rare medical conditions. One of which I thought I would share with you.
Deep Vein Thrombosis.
This is a condition when a blood clot is formed inside the body, usually seen in the lower leg region. This can present itself in numerous ways and not always spotted straight away. However, there are a few things to help reduce this from happening:
- Wear flight socks, and exercise the ankles/feet on a flight.
- Keep Active (especially after surgery).
- Maintain a sensible body weight.
If you are unsure if you have one please visit your GP.
