(I hope someone caught the GoT reference... ANYWAY)
So recently, I've been having this intolerance to the cold. It finally became fall in Savannah, GA after being between 80f-100f for the last five months, but it's only been 60f in the last few days and I'm freezing cold. I'm wondering if there's a connection between diabetes and cold intolerance, and if there is, if it's normal?
I read YahooAnswers on this, and all of them say "IT'S NEUROPATHY! YOUR FOOT'S COMING OFF!" and that scares me to death. I'm a relatively healthy person with T1DM, and my latest a1c was 6.3 ... I don't know. It's coming up on my first complete year with having diabetes, and I'm still new to everything.
I'm glad I read this because I used to have a really high tollerance of the cold, and in the past few years I've become a total wimp...I didn't think it was the onset of Neuropathy, but I just assumed I had poor circulation due to being diabetic. I've never heard of hypothyroid. Next time I see a doctor I'll get that looked into.
Oh also "Ours is the fury", "Hear me roar", "We do not Sow", "Family, Honor, Duty" Etc etc etc.
