The palms of my hands and soles of my feet are noticably orange. I stopped eating carrots, but there is no difference. Would there be a reason for this?
Carrots and oranges are high in beta-carotene, which causes orange colouring on the palms and soles in some people.
Similar colouring may result in thyroid dysfunction and certain types of anemia. I advise you to have your blood checked to rule out these problems.
