Vitamin Deficiency Can Cause Heel Fissures: MD Podiatrist

Although a good soak, pumice, and moisturize will do your feet the world of good, interestingly the foods you eat can also play a big role in the state of your feet. Expert podiatrist Dan Michaes says: “Your feet, just like any other part of your body, contain bones, muscles, ligaments, and blood vessels, so it’s important we take care of them.”

 

 

Dr. Michaels adds that an overall vitamin deficiency can actually be one of the many common causes of cracked heels, known as fissures, which can be painless and superficial or deep and very painful. It’s important to make sure you are eating a well-balanced diet and getting the right nutrition, as what you eat will affect your whole body, including your feet.
