Maryland Foot & Ankle Surgeon discusses “Hot Feet.”

Having hot feet is typically described as being akin to a warm sensation in the feet. In some cases, it’s simply because the feet have become too warm because of a particular choice of footwear or socks made of synthetic materials. In other causes, it’s the result of a more serious medical issue. “In terms of burning feet, that sometimes can be related to diabetes or a nerve issue,” Daniel D. Michaels, DPM States. “Sometimes the nerve changes can cause burning sensations.”

 

 

Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can cause a condition called diabetic neuropathy, where nerves in the feet can become damaged because of diabetes. In some cases, people will experience a burning sensation, while it’s common for others to experience pain, tingling, or numbness. Similarly, chronic kidney disease can lead to neuropathy. This condition can be treated relatively easily with vitamins which have no side effects or drug interactions.
