LOSS OF HAIR ON FEET CAN MEAN PAD (PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE)

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. AMANDA MESZAROS STATES, "YOUR FEET CAN CLUE YOU IN TO YOUR OVERALL HEALTH.  FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE HAIR ON YOUR TOES SUDDENLY DISAPPEARS AND THE SKIN ON YOUR FEET GETS THINNER OR SHINIER, PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE (PAD) - POOR CIRCULATION CAUSED BY A BUILDUP OF PLAQUE IN THE LEG ARTERIES - MAY BE TO BLAME.  PAD IS A MAJOR RED FLAG FOR HEART PROBLEMS OR A STROKE SINCE CLOGGED ARTERIES IN THE LEGS ARE USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH BLOCKAGES ELSEWHERE IN THE BODY."

PODIATRIST MESZAROS STATES, "ALSO LOOK OUT FOR EXTREMELY DRY SKIN AND FOOT ULCERS THAT DON'T HEAL; THEY MAY BE TRIGGERED BY UNDIAGNOSED DIABETES SINCE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SINCE HIGH BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS DECREASE SWEAT AND OIL PRODUCTION."

AT OUR FOOT CLINIC WE TREAT MANY PATIENTS WITH PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE (PAD) AND OUR FOOT CLINIC HAS INVESTED IN SPECIALIZED COMPUTERIZED EQUIPMENT TO MEASURE THE SURAL NERVE WHICH IS INVOLVED IN PAD.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE TO EXPERIENCE THE 'ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS' DIFFERENCE AND RECEIVE PERSONALIZED, PROFESSION ATTENTION, THEN PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
