Your Heart and Your Feet: What’s the Connection?

Your heart and your feet go hand in hand, so to keep your feet healthy, you need to keep your heart healthy and vice versa. In observance of American Heart Month, in today’s post, Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, shares some things your feet may be telling you that could signal a problem with your heart.

Your heart, which is actually a muscle, pumps blood throughout your body, from the tips of your fingers to the ends of your toes. Your blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells in your body.

Because our feet reflect our overall general health, problems with our feet can be the first indication of a more serious medical problem such as neuropathy, peripheral artery disease, heart disease, or diabetes

If you have any of these symptoms, schedule a visit with your physician immediately.

Keep your heart and your feet healthy by doing the following.

If you experience any of the symptoms listed above or are concerned about your foot health, contact Dr. Hubert Lee and his team at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA. You can schedule an appointment online or by calling us at 425-455-0936
