Cold Feet

Causes of Cold Feet

Whenever the body temperature starts to dip below its normal range, the body redirects the blood supply to critical organs (the brain, the lungs, the heart, and others) to keep them warm.  At the same time, blood is redirected away from the extremities--the hands and the feet. This is why a person first feels the effects of coldness in the fingers and toes.
