Can I lose 15 kg in three months of winter. Dec, jan, feb. In my city temperature in winter exist between 15 to 20 degree centigrade.?

Possible: It is possible but will take a lot of work with dieting and exercise. What does your city's temperature have to do with anything? That is an excuse. If you are committed to losing that much weight in that time frame, you can either exercise outside when it's comfortable or go to an indoor gym. It can be 0 or 35 deg celsius - it doesn't matter. ...Read more

My oral temperature is pretty much ALWAYS 37.1. I was told oral temp is cooler. So surely this means I always have a temperature?

My oral temperature is pretty much ALWAYS 37.1. I was told oral temp is cooler. So surely this means I always have a temperature?

I'll try to clarify!: While oral temp. Is lower than rectal temp, you may be confusing "having a temperature" with "having a fever". 37.1 isn't considered a fever and isn't a sign of illness. Also, while 37. 0 is the AVERAGE temp, NORMAL temp. Can range from 36.4 to 37.6 degrees C. You're actually unusual in having the same temp ALWAYS, since most people's temp ranges plus or minus about 0.5 degrees C. ...Read more

Got a peak on my Clearblue monitor but no BBT temperature rise. What does that mean?

Got a peak on my Clearblue monitor but no BBT temperature rise. What does that mean?

Could be ovulating: The Clearblue monitor is looking at hormone changes and is trying to predict ovulation. You can have false positives. The BBT also helps you but it is hard to do and again has false negatives. The combination of both is re assuring but not having a temperature rise and a positive Clearblue could mean you are ovulating. ...Read more

When your body temperature is real hot and you always get cold chills through your body what does that mean?

When your body temperature is real hot and you always get cold chills through your body what does that mean?

It's all physiology: Bacteria and viruses that cause human illnesses have specific requirements; oxygen, sugar, protein, and a limited temperature range for life and replication. Immune system messengers, cytokines, cause the perception iof chilling which causes lots of rapid muscle contractions (shivering) generating heat (fever) slowing pathogen reproduction. With chills we bundlle up & reduce body heat loss ...Read more

I have bad reactions to cold temperatures, but my symptoms don’t sound like raynaud’s. What could they mean?

Some other causes: Some people feel quite uncomfortable in colder temperatures, a condition called cold intolerance or cold sensitivity. If the vasospasm of raynaud's phenomenon is not present, then the cold intolerance is probably due to other causes instead of raynaud's. Other causes include hypothyroidism, other hormonal imbalances, anemia, older age, low body weight with low body fat, etc... ...Read more

I feel nauseous and feverish. My skin is very hot to the touch yet when reading my temperature orally, it's 3 degrees below normal. What's this mean?

It's not bad: As long as you're using the thermometer correctly, then it means you don't have a fever. A sensation of hot skin does not necessarily mean you're running a fever and could be related to dehydration which makes sense in the context of nausea. It may simply be a matter of drinking plenty of fluids and resting until feeling better. ...Read more

I have urine like diarrhea for almost three days. What should I do. And what foods should I be eating and staying away from caught a 24hr bug from a child. Its now spread like wildfire in the home. I've had a temperature for a day which is gone. Urine lik

Hi.: Hi. I cannot diagnose your symptoms. I would like to start with looking for clarification, as your first sentence can be interpreted more than one way. If your urine is much like diarrhea would be, than you absolutely need to get seen by a doctor right away. I think however, that what you were describing was diarrhea that has the consistency of urine. There is a lot of viral gastroenteritis going around right now. If the bug going around in jamaica, ny is much like the one circulating in newport, ri - it is a really nasty one. It is a good sign that your fever has resolved.
Viral gastroenteritis causes the peristalsis (motility) of the GI tract to increase. Digested materials are pushed through your large intestine so quickly, that fluids are not reabsorbed from the feces as they normally would be. The spasm of the smooth muscles in your gut can cause pain. If your symptoms do not resolve in a couple more days then you could have a bacterial infection, parasite or a disease of the gut.
It is likely however, to be the bug that you suspected you caught from a child. Work hard on staying hydrated. Water is very important, even if you can only tolerate sipping it. Stay away from acidic beverages and caffiene. Clear beverages may be helpful for 12 to 24 hours. When you add in solids, avoid things like meats, dairy products and fibrous vegetables as well as spicy or highly fatty foods.
One of the dangers of severe diarrhea is dehydration. If you try to stay up on fluids but you end up with a really fast heart beat, you feel dizzy (especially if it worse when getting up); you may be dehydrated. In that case, you may need a trip to the emergency room for intravenous hydration. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Infant temperature of a high fever for three month old?

Infant temperature of a high fever for three month old?

See a doctor: Fever usually means that the body is raising the temperature to stop viral or bacterial attacks. An infant retains the mother's antibodies for about 3 months. The infant's immature immune system takes over so the baby becomes more vulnerable. If the baby's temperature is very high or very low, it may be very serious
go to emergency dept, hydrate, tepid not cold water for cooling, take a temperature. ...Read more

Sounds like classic: Cold uritcaria. This occurs when a person can be considered "allergic" to cold temperatures, manifesting itself in various ways, skin swelling being one of the major reactions such as your eyes. You may consider a Cold Stimulation Test from an Allergy specialist. You may also consider taking an antihistamine like loratadine or cetirizine, or even ranitidine before your shift starts to see if it helps ...Read more
