The answer is yes, compression stockings can provide effective relief for certain diseases in overweight people.

More and more people are concerned about health issues. If you are overweight, you may be at higher risk for diseases such as hypertension, arthritis, peripheral arterial disease (varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis....) etc. In the case of peripheral artery disease, for example, as the disease worsens, patients often experience weakness, cramps, pain and other symptoms that may even endanger the arteries and heart.

You can reduce the probability of this disease by losing weight, and for those who already have the disease, in addition to following medical advice, they can use compression stockings to help with recovery.

Peripheral arterial disease refers to atherosclerosis, a condition in which blood vessels are narrowed by 50% or more and peripheral blood flow is reduced or blocked, resulting in ischemia. The decreasing pressure from the bottom to the top of compression stockings is helping the recovery of peripheral arterial disease: the gradient pressure promotes the return of blood to the heart and muscles, which in turn relieves the soreness and pain caused by ischemia and effectively prevents ulcers and ulcer necrosis in the extremities.

Therefore, compression stockings are also suitable for obese people.
