Why do your veins pop out of your arm? Is this normal or are you lacking something?

My boy friend and I are on a strict diet:) "new year resolution" lol.... ever since our diet his veins haven't popped out of his arms like usual... is this normal or is he lacking something? why do the veins pop out in the first place?

No.. Heat has nothing to do with it. You always maintain approximately the same body temperature. Veins pop out like that for a much simpler reason; there's not enough room. Why do they pop out more whenever your working out, or exercising? Because your muscles have entered summation, and so they're going to maintain a larger, more contracted state, giving your veins less room, and pushing them superficially. Now, when some people are big enough, or I guess 'fit' enough, their muscle fibers are thick enough to push the veins to the surface without any sort of stimulation. Now, going on a diet, if he's lacking protein to build muscle, then he is going to lose muscle mass, therefore he is going to lose the superficial veins. Hope I could help.

The reason why your veins pop out of your arm is because the body has a mechanism of regulating internal body temperature. When it is hot, veins dilate and bring blood to the surface of the skin so that you can lose more heat and maintain good body temperature.

Also, is he well hydrated? If not, the veins constrict. That is why it is difficult to start an IV on a patient who is dehydrated. He needs to drink more water. See if that helps.

Ya he was drinking a lot of soda... And drinking a lot. So we both decided to go on a diet and were doing really good and I have him drinking lots of water.

It can also happen when you get to be really skinny or if you have more muscle than fat in the area that your veins are sticking out in.
