what's your serum mag?

not that you're a rat but
Changes in body temperature and blood pressure in rats with calcium and magnesium deficiencies.
http://jap.physiology.org/content/37/6/835

in the above, mag deficient rats had lower body temp among other things.

your mention of hands and feet especially remind me of raynaud's, which is another red flag for low mag.

Hypomagnesemia, renal dysfunction, and Raynaud's phenomenon in patients treated with cisplatin, vinblastine, and bleomycin
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... O;2-2/full
"Severity of prior hypomagnesemia predicted an increased risk of Raynaud's phenomenon. Renal dysfunction, hypomagnesemia, and Raynaud's phenomenon are common chronic toxicities of vinblastine, bleomycin, and cisplatin therapy."

NHE might have something to contribute here also
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

My hands and feet (usually my hands) often get cold also. The coldness starts with my fingers and gradually works its way up my hands and up my arms if I don't eat soon. I tend to undereat. Eating usually causes them to warm up.

Specific dynamic action (SDA), also known as Thermic effect of food (TEF) or dietary induced thermogenesis (DIT), is the amount of energy expenditure above the resting metabolic rate due to the cost of processing food for use and storage.[1] Heat production by brown adipose tissue which is activated after consumption of a meal is an additional component of dietary induced thermogenesis.[2] The thermic effect of food is one of the components of metabolism along with resting metabolic rate and the exercise component. A commonly used estimate of the thermic effect of food is about 10% of one's caloric intake, though the effect varies substantially for different food components. For example, dietary fat is very easy to process and has very little thermic effect, while protein is hard to process and has a much larger thermic effect.[3

I also notice that under-eating causes increased spasticity and much worse moving.

I move around very little, sitting almost all the time. When I get moving around doing stuff in the kitchen or riding my exercise bike that greatly warms up my hands and feet. Sometimes magnesium oil treatments or some oral magnesium warms up my hands and feet also.

When I was a teenager, my feet would get cold and turn bluish standing on the cold floor where I lived.
The (drug) doctor I was seeing at the time explained it by saying that my hands and feet were "allergic" to the cold. No further info.

When doctors know next to nothing about nutrients, as is the case for most, this is the kind of craziness they often come up with. I'm surprised I wasn't prescribed a drug, but maybe there are no drugs approved for treating bluish feet.

Status of nutrition education in medical schools
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2430660/
On average, students received 23.9 contact hours of nutrition instruction during medical school (range: 2–70 h).
A total of 106 surveys were returned for a response rate of 84%. Ninety-nine of the 106 schools responding required some form of nutrition education; however, only 32 schools (30%) required a separate nutrition course. On average, students received 23.9 contact hours of nutrition instruction during medical school (range: 2–70 h). Only 40 schools required the minimum 25 h recommended by the National Academy of Sciences. Most instructors (88%) expressed the need for additional nutrition instruction at their institutions.

Viper99 Have you noticed if eating more food helps ?
Eating Breakfast is super important :!: :!:
How about movement or exercise, does that help ?

A number of years ago I bought a bunch of garlic pills on sale, and I noticed that they really helped heat up my hands and feet.

i'll keep an eye out for a test result. if you don't have one on file, could be worth asking.

failing bloodwork, you can assess your own diet for mag sufficiency.

you can read more about that and about daily needs in my last post to new member skatiem
undiagnosed-f54/topic29564.html#p250603

one option for a supplement to help meet daily needs
http://orangenaturals.com/essential/mag ... ate-200mg/
(but use whole foods as the basis as much as possible, for the other ingredients vs isolated magnesium)

the last study mentioned above was only meant to show a relationship between low mag and raynaud's. the context of the study (kidney issues, drug treatment) just came along for the ride. if there were more clear studies looking at mag and raynaud's in isolation, that would be great but i havent seen one yet.

Hi Viper99,

Have you ever had someone feel your feet when they feel cold? Do they agree that your feet are cold?
