Do you have cold feet despite wearing socks and looking for the reason? Here are few prominent causes of cold feet.
A study published in Foot Health Fact reveals that having cold feet is not a disease, but a symptom that something is wrong in the body.
According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, this disease occurs when there is not enough hemoglobin in the blood.
If the blood is flowing properly then feet stay warm. When this does not happen, the extremities become cold and cause damage to the veins or narrowing of the arteries.
Cold feet could occur when the thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormones.
When there is damage to a nerve, there is a deficiency of vitamins or metabolic deficiencies, it is more likely that the feet will stay cold.
Sweating in excess
Using inappropriate footwear, exercising or being nervous can cause hyperhidrosis, so your feet will be moist and cold.
What to do?
1. Consume vegetables and opt for spices that increase body temperatures like ginger, curry and cayenne pepper.
2. Avoid caffeine and dairy.
3. If you sweat a lot, change your socks at least 2 times a day and make sure they are made of wool.
4. Put your feet in a bowl of warm water or a foot massager that contains warm water to increase blood circulation.
Take care of your health and if you notice that the cold in the feet does not go down, do not hesitate to consult with a specialist.
