Seer voete

My ma is 73 en haar voete is op die hakke bloedrooi (half blou-rooi) en party van haar tone ook. Sy sê  haar voete pyn baie en dra nou net oop sandale. Kan dit wees omdat sy bietjie suiker het. Sy is nie ' n diabeet nie. Dan moet ek ook bysê  dat sy baie sit. Kan dit daarvan wees dat sy nie genoeg bloedvloei het nie?

Dear Karien

It sounds like your mom has a circulation problem in the feet. This can cause the red/blue colour you described. This can be worsened by sitting around for long periods. I suggest going to your GP or maybe a vascular specialist to have the circulation checked.

Chris
