by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu 朱興國编譯            按此看中文。


Diabetes, liver diseases, kidney diseases, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or chronic drug usage can result in a person's feet getting hot . When the bottom of the feet get hot, it is important to check to see if there are problems related to:

  2. blood vesselsor/and

  3.  pixu (spleen deficient) or/and

  4. shenyinxu (kidney yin deficient)

1. Nerve problems that cause hot feet include compression of the nerve due to intervertebral disc hernia, vertebral bone spurs, or  subluxation of vertebrae (when the vertebrae aren't properly aligned). Peripheral nerves can be damaged due to diabetes, chronic intoxication of alcohol, low blood sugar, or porphyria.

2. Blood vessel problems may be indicated if the bottom of the feet are hot and there is also edema. Blood vessel problems can be caused by diseases of the vein, such as blood clots, phlebitis (inflammation of the vein), or infection of the vein. If there is no edema, blood vessel problems can  be caused by diabetes. High blood sugar causes disease of the arteries which causes the feet to become hot or cold. Blood vessel problems can also be caused by coronary diseases, fungal infections, and

3. pixu (spleen deficient): bad digestion such as malnutrition resulting from difficulty in eating and difficulty in nutrient absorption.
