Dr. Oz: My Hands & Feet Are Freezing Cold Always!

Dr. Oz was asked by a gentleman in his audience why his feet and hands are always so freezing cold?  Whenever the man touches his wife, she jumps because his hands are so cold.

Dr. Oz said that reactive blood vessels can be more sensitive in certain people, and changes in the environment or in diet (like not eating a lot of saturated fats) can cause you to have cold extremities (like hands and feet).

    I have the same problem. I notice it more in my feet than in my hands, but they both are always FREEZING regardless of the temperature or how bundled up I am. My boyfriend won’t even hold my hand sometimes because they are too cold. Should I be worried, and is there anything at all that I can do to remedy this?

    P.S they’ve been like this as long as I can remember, and I’ve kept up pretty much the same diet and excercise regimen for about the last 2 or 3 years, if that helps any.

    Hi Shannon! My hands are always cold too… and my husband is forever telling me not to touch him until I warm up my hands haha. So I am afraid I have not yet figured out a way to stop freezing hand or feet. If you (or anyone else) figures out a cure though, please do share it with us!!!

    Likewise, it could possibly just be bad circulation or something serious such as raynauds disease. As long as your fingertips don’t turn white & they don’t tingle I wouldn’t worry about it. & run hot water & hold them in for a little feels odd at first but it does help!
