    Hi Lopper,

    What tyou are experiencing is not uncommon.
    Diabetics have high suger levels.
    High sugar levels result in poor blood circulation.
    Poor circulation results in being susceptible to cold at the extremities of our bodies.
    So cold feet, cold hands, etc.

    Best solution in cold weather is look after the bits that feel coldest, so wear gloves and thermal socks.
