Speaking with Express.co.uk, Doctor Joseph Ambani, from GlowBar says that “cold” or “cramping” feet could indicate high cholesterol.
“High cholesterol can manifest in the feet,” he explained.

“They may also feel chilly or cold, regardless of the season.
“It does not have to be on both feet. If you notice such, I recommend seeking immediate professional clarification,” he adds.
