I, too have cold feet, and Type II Diabetes and Hypothyroid (low thyroid). Just to be sure, you should talk to your health care provider.

I've been wearing socks to bed, too, and wear slippers instead of going barefoot. Up until recently, I always had hot feet and went barefoot, hated socks and slippers.

Cold sensations to the feet can come from poor circulation and disorders of the nervous system as well as cold exposure and low thyroid condition.

Hi Jane,

Welcome from a fellow Canadian and also a diabetic. Cold feet is a symptom of diabetes and is the result of poor blood circulation going to your extremities. A lot of times I end up wearing socks to bed just to keep my feet warm at night. Sometimes leg massages help.

Good luck,
Mike.

HI MY NAME IS JANE AND I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS NOW. I HAVE MY BS UNDER CONTROL FOR THE MOST PART. I HAVE NOTICED SINCE MY DIAGNOSIS THAT MY FEET GET VERY COLD EVERY NIGHT EVEN IN THE SUMMER TIME. I WEAR A PAIR OF SOCKS AND COZY SLIPPERS JUST TO START TO GET THEM WARMED UP. I HAVE DIFFICULTY SLEEPING WITH COLD FEET. HAS ANYONE ELSE EVER EXPERIENCED THIS? IS IT PART OF MY DIABETES? ANY ADVICE OR MAYBE ANSWERS WOULD BE WELL APPRECIATED. JANE
