Circulation issues caused by smoking can result in cold feet. One such rare, but serious, complication includes Buerger’s disease, which affects blood vessels in the arms and legs. The blood vessels swell, which can prevent blood flow and can cause clots to form, according to the CDC.
Cold sensations to the feet can come from poor circulation, disorders of the nervous system, cold exposure injuries,and decreased metabolism from a low thyroid condition (hypothyroidism). Other diseases that can cause cold feet symptoms include diabetes, arteriosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease, Raynaud’s phenomenon, neuropathy, and frostbite.
This is what you’ll need:
Reflective material (you can use the reflective sun block we use for our cars and trucks in the summer season).
Remove the show insert from your boot and press it against the reflective sunscreen. Draw an outline around the shoe insert and cut it out. Place the new insert in your boot under your original shoe insert. And you’re ready to venture into the cold without fearing your feet will freeze.
People of all ages suffer from cold feet from time to time. Sometimes the cause is simply exposure to cold temperatures, but cold feet can also be a symptom of a disease.
Thermo-receptor cells, less than a millimetre below the surface of the skin, are what cause us to experience changes in temperature, says Michael Tipton, professor of human and applied physiology at the University of Portsmouth.
Normally, the skin is kept at a comfortable temperature thanks to blood pumping through the capillaries — tiny, branch-like blood vessels that make up our microcirculation.
