How Your Feet Signals Your Health Condition

How Your Feet Signals Your Health Condition

As your partner in providing Personal Care Services in Scottsdale, Arizona, let us share this helpful information on what you should watch out for in your feet to evaluate your health status.

  1. Drying skin with flakes

    Have you noticed some flaky appearances on your heels? These could also look like little cracks. It could be a sign for some thyroid problems. You see, the thyroid gland is responsible for producing hormones that handle our metabolism and tissue growth, among others. When you have drying skin, this can indicate that the thyroid could be having issues, especially if you experience unexpected weight gain, hand numbness, and occasional blurry visions. Check with your doctor immediately.

  2. Toe hairs that are receding

    Have you observed that the hairs on your toes are getting thinner or are receding? They could even look bald. This could indicate a poor flow of blood, which means that your legs have low blood supply already. This condition can lead to heart attack especially when there’s a plaque build-up in the legs’ arteries. When you notice these occurrences, better consult with your physician right away

  3. Numbness

    Do you experience frequent numbness on your foot? This could also indicate a lack of good blood flow in your legs. This can happen if you’ve been sitting in the same position for a long time. However, if the numbness occurs more than one time, it’s a warning signal you should consult your doctor with. If this numbness is also accompanied by wounds in your feet that take a long time to heal, better talk to your doctor as this can also indicate diabetes.

  4. Foot pains especially in the morning

    Have you been experiencing some shooting pains in your foot every morning, especially as you step out of bed? This could be a sign for rheumatoid arthritis. RA is a known trigger of inflaming the joints, resulting in shooting pains as we walk. The other possible reasons are plantar fasciitis and muscle cramps. If these pains have been bothering you frequently, check with your doctor immediately.

  5. Discoloration on your toenails

    Do you notice some discolorations or black spots on your toes? This appears like the discoloration when you drop something on your foot, or when someone steps on them accidentally. If you’ve noticed these dark colors without some accidents, it’s best to consult with your doctor. Some forms of skin cancer have this characteristic symptom. In other instances, these could also be foot fungi which can lead to infection if not attended to immediately.

These are simple indications that help you prevent any oncoming illness if diagnosed properly. When you need someone to accompany you to the doctor’s checkup, our In-Home Care Agency in Arizona can provide you with experienced staff to assist.
