Cold Hands and Feet

Time Magazine: 10 Reasons You Feel Cold All the Time

Hands holding feet
Most of us have experienced “cold hands and cold feet” in our lifetime e.g. nervousness before an important speech. That is normal – the body diverts blood from our extremities to other parts of the body in preparation for a ‘fight or flight’ situation. But what if your hands (and legs and other parts of the body) feel cold always?

Time Magazine compiled a list of 10 reasons why you may feel cold all the time. These include:

  • Check if you are drinking enough water
  • You’re too thin
  • Your thyroid is out of whack
  • You don’t get enough iron
  • You have poor circulation
  • You don’t get enough sleep
  • You don’t consume enough vitamin B12
  • You’re a woman
  • You have diabetes
  • You need to bulk up your muscle mass

Did you know a number of these reasons have an association with your mouth and dentistry?
Water, thyroid, iron, sleep, vitamin B12, diabetes – all this point to chronic inflammation within the body.

If you find yourself having cold hands and cold feet more than usual, talk to us at Image Dental to find out what can be done.
