Circulatory system plays the most important role in keeping a good condition of our health. There are many reasons that can cause poor blood circulation including obesity, smoking, drinking, and poor diet.
Poor blood circulation can lead to heart diseases, blood clots, and diabetes.
Today, we will present some of the warning signs of poor blood circulation. Read them very carefully!
Poor Blood Circulation
Poor blood circulation can affect the kidneys function. It can make them unable to carry out the blood where it is needed. The blood stays in one place, around the tissues, and can cause swelling of the lower extremities.
Swelling can be a result of pregnancy, PMS, or sedentary lifestyle. But if you experience it constantly and you can’t solve it by raising the legs above the level of the heart, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Numbness in the extremities can be caused by exposure to cold or in a case of deficiency of vitamin B12.
Another sign of poor blood circulation is cold hands or feet.
In order to solve this problem, you should rub your hands and feet. But, if you constantly experience this, we recommend you to consult your specialist as soon as possible.
Excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol, depression, stress, inactivity, and insomnia can cause constant exhaustion and fatigue. This condition weakens the immune system and your body is more susceptible to injuries.
If you notice that your wounds take much more to heal, it means that the blood circulation does not deliver the vital vitamins and minerals throughout the body. This can result in rapid hair loss.
If your hair is dry, it means that your scalp does not receive the necessary vitamins. Bad circulation leads to damaged nails and dry skin. In order to prevent this condition, you should exercise every day, for at least 30 minutes.
Varicose veins are easy to detect because they are extremely swollen and visible. The veins occur because of lack of circulation.
Erectile dysfunction can be a result of poor blood flow to the reproductive organs. This condition can be related to atherosclerosis. So, men who have this problem should visit their doctor to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease.
It is very important to consult your doctor in order to get the proper treatment and medicine.
Cyanosis (low oxygen level in the blood) makes the lips, skin, gums, and even fingertips to turn blue. If you have some of these signs, consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Experiencing tightness or heaviness in the chest is a sign that your heart can’t function properly as a result of decreased blood flow. We highly recommend you to visit your doctor immediately.
Getting enough sleep and avoiding stress with a combination of healthy diet and regular exercising will prevent a low flow of blood in your body.
You should also quit smoking, replace the coffee with green tea, and reduce the consumption of alcohol.
