Description: http://media.healthday.com/images/editorial/HCH077.jpgA new study in the American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology has uncovered new evidence that aids in the understanding of cold feet. Scientists have pinpointed specific proteins in the blood vessels that cause a reaction when the body is exposed to cold. The body's normal response to cold is to restrict blood flow to the extremities, but in people with cold feet, the proteins overreact and limit circulationtoo much, causing overly cold feet and hands.

Cold feet due to poor circulation are a difficult condition to treat. If you are experiencing overly cold feet that you think might be due to poor circulation, you should seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay.  Dr. Stein will give you a thorough examination to determine the cause of your cold feet and recommend appropriate treatment options.

What is Poor Circulation?

Poor blood circulation in the feet and legs is caused by peripheral artery disease (PAD), which is the result of a buildup of plaque in the arteries.

Plaque buildup or atherosclerosis results from excess calcium and cholesterol in the bloodstream. It usually restricts the amount of blood which can flow through the arteries. Poor blood circulation in the feet and legs are sometimes caused by inflammation in the blood vessels, known as vasculitis.

Causes

Lack of oxygen and oxygen from poor blood circulation restricts muscle growth and development.

It can also cause:

- Muscle pain 
- Numbness in legs
- Cramps
- Skin discoloration
- Weakness
- Slower nail & hair growth
- Stiffness
- Erectile dysfunction
