As a result, the amount of red blood cells reduces, causing anemia. In addition, the accumulated waste products shorten the lifespan of red blood cells, making red blood cells decrease further.

Besides anemia, poor blood circulation is also a common cause of cold feet. Impaired kidneys can not remove waste products from the blood timely. Those waste slows down blood flow so that substance in the blood deposit easily, leading to stasis. This affects blood circulation.
