From India:

Do people with diabetes have intolerance to heat and cold? If so, why?


I guess the symptoms could be common as autoregulation of small blood vessels in the extremities and the trunk result in symptoms of temperature dysregulation. Also, patients with type 1 diabetes are at increased risk for primary hypothyroidism and have symptoms of cold intolerance.
