Your feet are the farthest part of your body away from your heart and they can be an indication of your cardiac health.
With winter upon us, do you have to wear layers of socks to still have the feeling of cold toes or iccicles in your boots?
This may be a sign of heart problem such as congestive heart failure, which can cause problems on your circulatory system and prevent blood from getting to where it needs to be. With the feet being so far away from the heart, the blood needs to travel the longest distance, therefore, resulting in poor circulation to the feet. Some signs of poor circulation include absence of hair to the toes or feet and/or color changes.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S and to make Americans aware February is Heart Health Month, so please take note of your feet.
