Russian orthopedic surgeon Daniela Despres revealed 8 serious diseases behind cold feet.
She explained that in the cold season, these symptoms usually do not pose any threat to health and are a physiological basis. But sometimes cold feet are a sign of a number of diseases – according to “Sputnik” -.
She suggested that atherosclerosis could be one of the causes of this condition. With this disease, blood circulation is impaired – especially in the legs, as the blood vessels are very narrow. As a result, the extremities turn cold.
And she added that among the risk factors for developing atherosclerosis, smoking, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.
Another possible cause of cold feet, she said, is diabetes, in which some patients develop neuropathy – nerve damage. Also, with type 2 diabetes, it is possible to impair blood circulation. In this case, the vessels of the leg are particularly affected.
She noted that the next cause is Raynaud’s disease, in which vasoconstriction occurs during stress or cold. This can be seen by discoloration or paleness of the limbs.
Cold feet can also be a sign of peripheral neuropathy. This condition is often accompanied by tingling and burning in the extremities. Despres explained.
Another cause of cold feet is anemia, a condition in which the body produces insufficient red blood cells. Most often this phenomenon occurs due to iron deficiency, which can be indicated by a decrease in the level of hemoglobin in the body.
In addition, cold feet can be caused by anxiety and hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones to function properly, which can lead to poor circulation.
