Does Type II Diabetes cause my feet to be cold?

For ten years now, I've noticed that cold really affects my feet and toes. I wear warm
socks and good shoes but it seems they always feel cold.

Diabetic neuropathy (cold or numb hands or feet) is a common sign of poor circulation in diabetes.

Low magnesium is another cause of cold hands or feet. I had this symptom with magnesium deficiency. My feet were freezing! I had severe magnesium deficiency due to a combination of insulin resistance, stress from surgery, high doses of vitamin D.

“A deficiency can occur with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, but appears to be more prevalent with type 2. This is because low levels of magnesium are associated with insulin resistance.”
