  • PODIATRIST DISCUSSES RELATIONSHIP OF POOR CIRCULATION TO NEUROPATHY
Podiatrist Dr. Philip Yearian states, "one problem many older adults have with their feet is poor circulation, but that’s a problem that can affect anyone at any age. When you don’t have good blood flow in your feet, you might experience tingling, numbness, cramping, and discoloration of your skin and toenails. Several factors can restrict blood flow in your feet, including being outdoors in the cold or having your feet in cold water, shoes or stockings that are too tight, sitting too long with your legs crossed, smoking, and drinking too many caffeinated beverages." 
 
 
Podiatrist Yearian also states, "people who suffer from diabetes need to be particularly sensitive to the circulation in their feet. “Reduced circulation can lead to a loss of feeling in the feet, a condition known as neuropathy. This can prevent diabetics from feeling small aches and pains that let us know we have been cut or bruised. Left untreated, these small problems can develop into serious conditions."
 
Dr. Hardy's Toronto Foot Clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics has invested in 2 NC-STAT computerized diagnostic devices which detects early diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).  This is cutting edge and important to screen for pre-diabetic nerve damage.
