Prominent forearm veins?

Well I have lost a lot of weight this year due to diet changes but over the last couple of months I have noticed that the veins in my arms are becoming really prominent and also becoming visible on my legs etc.

Now they are just my regular veins not varicous veins or anything abnormal looking.

I have stopped losing weight and changed diet to keep my current weight and put on some pounds. However I have been sitting at my current weight for a while now yet the veins still seem to becoming more visible.

Anyone know whats possibly causing this?

Re: Prominent forearm veins?

hmm, well sometimes if you change your diet it can change some qualities in the skin, maybe your skin is not as healthy as it could be, thus being more transparent and making your veins more visable. It could also be because a change of humidity. Get and stay on a healthy diet, and experiment with the humidity to see if any of these factors affect your vein prominance. Some people like having prominant veins, where some other people don't, just a matter of preferance. Hope i helped.
