Decreased circulation in the extremities is one of the most common reasons for cold feet. Atherosclerosis, which leads to a buildup of fatty deposits that narrow the arteries, can cause this symptom. The feet may appear purple or blue when a person is sitting and white or pale when lying down. Other obstructive vascular diseases include diabetic peripheral angiopathy, thromboangiitis obliterans, and microemboli.
