When temperatures dip, it seems like the first part of your body to notice is always the feet.  Cold feet are a serious problem and can be extremely uncomfortable and even painful for some.

Fighting the cold requires a lot of physical energy.  It is distracting and actually makes me feel very tired.  When my feet are warm, I notice that my whole body is more comfortable and at ease.  I am able to concentrate on my work instead of working to stay warm.  –Jennifer, Toasty Toes user

The following medical conditions may cause or increase the tendency for someone to have cold feet:

  • Peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage)
  • Diabetes / diabetic neuropathy (poor circulation)
  • Raynaud's Phenomenon (artery narrowing)
  • Hypothyroidism (temperature regulation malfunction)
  • Acrocyanosis (overreactive arteries or "blue toes")
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease (artery blockage)
  • Pernicious Anemia (decrease in red blood cells)
  • Buerger's Disease (tightening of blood vessels)
  • Frost Bite and other cold-weather related injuries
  • PLUS, some people are just more sensitive to the cold!

Cozy foot heaters are an excellent solution for anyone suffering with cold feet.  Gently warm feet and legs with a foot warmer mat, a heated foot rest or an under desk foot warmer.
