Severely dry, flaky feet can be your body’s way of telling you that you are experiencing thyroid problems. Thyroid hormones control your blood pressure, metabolic rate, tissue growth, skeletal development and nervous system development. When your thyroid gland starts experiencing issues, it won’t properly produce those essential hormones.*
Try an intensive moisturizing treatment by applying heavy lotion to your feet and wearing socks to bed to lock in that moisture. If your dryness does not improve after a few days, visit your doctor to make sure that this is not a more serious sign of thyroid issues.
