DRY, FLAKY FEET COULD INDICATE THYROID DISEASE

 

PODIATRIST, DR. MARLENE REID STATES, "IF YOU HAVE DRY, FLAKY FEET, IT COULD BE THYROID PROBLEMS, ESPECIALLY IF MOISTURIZER DOESN'T HELP.  WHEN THE THYROID GLAND GOES ON THE FRITZ, IT DOESN'T PROPERLY PRODUCE THYROID HORMONES, WHICH CONTROL METABOLIC RATE, BLOOD PRESSURE, TISSUE GROWTH, AND SKELETAL AND NERVOUS SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT.  THYROID PROBLEMS CAUSE SEVERE DRYNESS OF THE SKIN.  WHEN WE SEE CRACKING ON THE FEET, OR IF MOISTURIZER DOESN'T IMPROVE DRYNESS OVER A FEW DAYS, WE REFER PATIENTS TO THEIR PRIMARY DOCTOR TO MAKE SURE THEIR THYROIDS ARE OKAY."
