PODIATRIST STATES THAT YOUR FEET CAN GET LARGER AS YOU AGE

FLORIDA PODIATRIST, DR CARY ZINKIN STATES, "AFTER YEARS OF WEAR AND TEAR, TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS IN YOUR FEET MAY WEAKEN.  THIS CAN CAUSE ARCHES TO FLATTEN, WHICH MEANS FEET GET WIDER AND LONGER.  IT WON'T HAPPEN TO EVERYONE, THOUGH -- PEOPLE WHO ARE OVER WEIGHT, WHO GET SWOLLEN FEET OR ANKLES, OR WHO HAVE CERTAIN MEDICAL CONDITIONS, LIKE DIABETES ARE MORE PRONE.  IF IT DOES HAPPEN, THE AVERAGE GAIN IS ABOUT ONE SHOE SIZE BY AGE 70 OR 80."
