In today’s program Dr. Reminga talks about Raynaud’s Disorder… what it is, who gets it, and what to do about it. Raynaud’s is considered a rare disease that affects the finger and toes. People with Raynaud’s are known to have attacks in response to cold temperatures or stressful circumstances. Many of us experience numbness in our fingers and toes after exposure to extremely cold temperatures; however, for those who live with Raynaud’s… cold conditions or emotional stress, such as anxiety or anger, can trigger an attack.

Raynaud’s is characterised by episodic attacks, called, Vasospastic Attacks, that causes the blood vessels to constrict in the fingers and toes. During a Raynaud's attack, the arteries become very narrow for a brief period. As a result, little or no blood flows to affected areas. Raynaud’s can occur on its own or… link to another condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma or lupus, multiple sclerosis, or other connective tissue diseases.

Dr. Reminga says… “Raynaud’s can be referred to as… ‘primary’ and “secondary”. There is no known cause in 9 out of 10 cases. It affects women more than men between the ages of 15 and 30… and women are affected more who live in colder climates.” Listen to Dr. Reminga explain more about Raynaud’s in today’s program. You are sure to learn something new about this condition.

Swollen feet and ankles are fairly common and not usually a cause for concern, particularly if you've been standing or walking a lot. But feet and ankles that stay swollen or, are accompanied by other symptoms could signal a serious health problem. Long airplane flights or car rides, as well as standing for long periods of time, often lead to some swelling in the feet and ankles. While swelling in the foot, leg, and ankle usually doesn’t pose a significant health risk, it’s important to know when to be concerned about a more serious underlying health issue.

In today’s program, Dr. Reminga says… “If you notice swelling in your feet and ankles, you are suffering from what is medically called edema. Edema is caused by water retention in the body. While edema can happen anywhere on the body, it is most common in the lower legs, hands, abdomen, and chest. Swelling in the feet, is called pedal edema or peripheral edema and is due to the accumulation of excessive fluid in the tissues. Swelling is often more apparent in the lower areas of the body because of gravity.” He talks about lymphedema, venous insufficiency, diabetic neuropathy, and blood clots as well.

If you experience swelling in your feet and ankles, today’s program will be helpful to you. Dr. Reminga shares his expertise and unique insight regarding this interesting topic.
