hi mam/sir,anemia also causes cold sensation.though your iron levels came normal,you might be suffering from anemia.firstly rule out any occult blood losses as in stools,menses etc.you need to improve your hemoglobin % to atleast 11gm%.one more probability is hypothyroidism that causes cold intolerance.it may have some more symptoms like weight gain,hair loss,excessive sleep,constipation etc.once please have your thyroid profile and hemoglobin,serum ferritin done.please upload the reports so that we can arrive at an apt diagnosis and can manage accordingly.any more queries i'm always happy to attend.thank you.take care.bye.
