Brief Answer:
Anemia to check with complete blood count

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concerns.

Your symptoms (cold hands and feet, vertigo, low body temperature, tingling in ears) are mostly suggesting of anemia.

You say to be controlling prediabetes by diet. Restrictions in diet might have further caused anemia.

Please get a complete blood count and measure iron levels too.
You should also check:
- thyroid hormones (TSH, T3, T4)
- liver/kidney function test
- fasting blood glucose, HbA1C,
- monitor blood pressure
- Stool examination for ova parasites

The episode of vertigo is associated with neurological reaction explaining further about your diarrhea.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.
