What's the Deal With Cold Hands and Feet?

It's Winter, and for many people, especially women, their hands and feet are always cold. The reason this happens is basically your body's way of surviving cold temps. When the thermometer level drops, your body tries to keep your core warm, where all your vital organs are. So the blood vessels in your extremities constrict and limit circulation to these parts of your body. The result is cold-to-the-touch fingers, hands, toes, feet, nose, and ears. The best thing to do is bundle up with warm clothes, exercise, or drink hot beverages to increase your body temperature.

If it's not cold where you live, then cold hands and feet could mean something else. To find out what then read more.

If you have risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease such as history of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes, then cold hands and feet could also be a sign that there are blockages in the small blood vessels. Medications can help with this, or increasing your omega-3s.

If your fingers and toes are often cold and they turn a whitish color, then you may have Raynaud's Disease, which can be caused by cold weather or stress. If you're concerned about your hands and feet constantly being cold, then it can't hurt to make an appointment with your doctor.

The Chill Factor: Raynaud's Disease
from fitsugar

I was teaching a yoga class the other day, and when this woman took off her socks before class, her friend said, "What's up with your toes?" Her big toe and the toe next to it were completely whitish-green, and the others looked normal. She told us she had something called Raynaud's disease. It's a condition that most commonly affects your fingers and toes but can also affect your nose or ears. It makes them become numb and feel cool, and it's a response to cold temperatures or stress. It's really common in women and in people who live in colder climates.

It's not the same as frostbite, which happens when your tissues freeze and can permanently damage the affected area. With Raynaud's disease, arteries to your fingers and toes go into what's called a vasospasm, which constricts the blood vessels and temporarily limits the blood supply to those areas, causing them to turn pale. Once the spasms stop, the area may turn red, but then goes back to its normal coloring.

This condition may occur alone or may be caused by something else, such as lupus, arthritis, carpel tunnel syndrome, thyroid disorders, genetics, or smoking. If you think you may have Raynaud's disease, make an appointment with your doctor to have it checked out.
