A lack of hair on your feet may be a sign of circulatory
problems, explains Andrew Manganaro, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Life Line
When I was a resident
surgeon, many years ago, one of my professors, himself a world renowned
vascular surgeon, once said, "It is better to have hair on your feet
than on your head."
A receding hairline on your head may not be your favorite
look, but lack of hair on your feet is much more dangerous. It is could be
a sign that your feet are not getting adequate blood flow.
The good news is that
this can be checked with a simple screening that measures the blood
pressure in your feet called an Ankle-Brachial Index. This screening can
let you know if you are at risk for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) or
other circulatory problems.
The Wall Street Journal's Melinda Beck also reports on the
value of feet in evaluating circulatory health in her June 23rd article
"What Your Body is Telling You." She writes, "Circulatory
problems can manifest as numbness and tingling in the feet…When circulation
is compromised, even a minor scratch or sore on the feet can become
infected easily." I have always Said that HBOT can grow hair! Susan Rodriguez CHT #hbot Rapid Recovery Hyperbarics www.hbot4u.com
