Cold intolerance can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'very serious'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose cold intolerance, we could:
|Iron Deficiency Anemia||30%||Unlikely|
|Epstein-Barr Virus||0%||Ruled out|
|Seasonal Affective Disorder||0%||Ruled out|
