Feeling cold is a common symptom of Diabetic Nephropathy. It is an indication of circulatory problems. That may be caused by the following reasons:
Diabetic nephropathy diet principle is low caloric diet. At the same time, they may have poor appetite, vomiting or nausea. As a result, the calories needed by the body cannot be satisfied. What’s more, some patients have much little carbohydrate, protein and fat, which provide little caloric. So many people with diabetic nephropathy often feel extremely cold.
Anemia may also happen in diabetic nephropathy. It is caused by the damaged kidney function. As you know, kidney is the producer of erythropoietin (EPO), which is responsible for red blood cells’ generation. Due to the damaged kidneys, red blood cells become decreased, resulting in anemia. That is why patients always feel cold.
