My feet get cold and I'm constantly getting sick

I have diabetes, but it's under control, with cholesterol, blood sugar, etc. all at nominal levels.  I also have low testosterone, which I'm currently not doing much about.  My feet are constantly getting cold when I'm sitting down.  When I'm walking around, it's fine, but when sit down for a while, my feet start to get really cold, like biting, painful, uncomfortable cold.  If I let this last for a while, I start to get sick, with bad cold symptoms.  As a result of this, I have been sick with cold symptoms to varying degrees nonstop for about a year.  It's really annoying.  I had my thyroid level checked, and it's normal.  The doctors I go to can't seem to figure out what the problem is.  Can anyone help?

Hi, this, could be reynaulds our it could be early neuropathy. What is your hba1c. Suggest thick warm socks to help.  Bring it up with your Dr as well, and also ask to be tested for possible thyroid issues.
