    My GF has been getting cold hands and feet help

    Recently my girlfriend has been complaining about her hands and feet being very cold.
    She is 26 years old 5' 7" 135lbs

    She does do exercise daily long walks since she has a dog and treadmill ect...

    If anyone has any input that would be great

    happy holidays.

    Isn't that normal this time of the year? Generally the body restricts blood flow in the hands and feet to keep the rest of the body warm (the important parts).

    Tell her to wear socks and gloves outside when it is cold. That should solve it.

    Women have lower blood pressure then men, so when it gets cold the vessels in the feet and hands constrict more, so they get less blood. The lower blood pressure also has the body push it more to their core, to protect a possible baby, not sure on that one though.
    Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    Also, women tend to carry a more even dispacement of bodyfat. That makes them more efficient at diverting their body heat to the core when it's cold. That's why women always want the office or house warmer than the men.

    Another possibility is hormonal changes. If women's hormones are out of whack they often complain of feeling too hot or cold. If it's really bad she could get her levels checked.
