Q: What causes poor circulation in the feet?
A: There can be many causes of poor circulation in one’s feet. The most common cause relates to diseases of the blood vessel, which is usually manifested as Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). PAD can be a result of someone having a long smoking history, high blood pressure, or diabetes. Other diseases of the blood vessels and circulation issues such as Raynaud’s disease can also cause poor circulation in the feet. Occasionally, people with venous insufficiency can also suffer from poor circulation in the feet.
