User :   what is the solution for this
Doctor :   The only solution to this problem is preventing exposure to cold weather.
Doctor :   Wearing warm socks, keeping yourself warm are the measures suggested here.
Doctor :   I also suggest you to see a doctor and get doppler scans done to see if there are already obstructed blood vessels.
Doctor :   If they are present then, you need specific treatment for it.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   i was only worried was it a symptom of diabetes...since i urinate more than once during nite
Doctor :   Increased urination at night is seen in some people.
Doctor :   It is explained by over active bladder or high water consumption.
