Other nerve disorders may also cause regular cold feet. Nerve damage may be caused by trauma or injury, such as severe frostbite, or may be because of an underlying medical condition.
Peripheral neuropathy may also be caused by liver or kidney disease, infection, or genetics. It usually causes additional symptoms, including numbness and tingling. Treating symptoms, such as cold feet, can help a person reduce their discomfort while waiting for a proper diagnosis.
Hypothyroidism is caused by an underactive thyroid gland, producing a low level of thyroid hormone, which has a negative impact on the body’s metabolism.
The body’s metabolism affects circulation, heartbeat, and body temperature, so anything that impacts on thyroid function and causes hypothyroidism can lead to cold feet.
People with hypothyroidism may be more sensitive to cold and may experience other symptoms, such as fatigue, weight gain, and memory problems.
