What Does A Subnormal Body Temperature Mean
Broken thermometer: More likely to have a broken thermometer or incorrectly used thermometer rather than truly low core temperature as suggested by your reading. Why did you check in the first place? If you're well, probably nothing to worry about. If you're not well, then go see your family doc for true reading, evaluation & treatment.
Subnormal: Temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is considered normal. When the temp goes lower you may have an infection, be dying or could be in need of a new thermometer. More information would be needed to get to a working diagnosis.
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
Throughout my life, my body temperature has been about 96.6. What does it mean that my temp is significantly outside of normal ranges?
Not much usually.: Hypothyroidism can be the cause of low body temp. If that is not your problem, many people normally run a low temp. 98.6 is just the median range for a normal temp, many people are above and below that.
I have a feeling good body temperature of about 96.7 or so. Other than being lower than the mean can it indicate anything could be wrong?
Rectally?: Usually taking temperature with a rectal thermometer, obviously in the rectum, is considered the most accurate.
Body temp: Depends on what you all normal. Some just have lower levels and others higher. Can mean you are cold.
Yesterday, my body temperature was 98.7 degrees fahrenheit. Today, it's 98.2 degrees fahrenheit. No malaise. What does this mean?
Temperature changes: Most people have a range in which their normal temperature varies. Without symptoms, this may be normal for you.
May be hypothyroid: If you are not very ill, which can lead to a low temperature, and the temp is below 97. 6, you may be hypothyroid. Remember, 98.6 is average, normal can be 1 degree above or below. The temperature normally goes down at night and is lowest about 4:00-6:00 A.M. About 2 hours before awakening. Then it can be as low as 97.
Longevity: There are some theories that a lower body temperature may be associated with longer life span.
Probably nothing: If you have low thyroid hormone you may run lower than normal body temps, as well as if you have been out in cold weather for a long time period. It would be helpful if you told us what your temperature was, and how you measured it.
Hi dr's. Lately, I've noticed that my breasts are always warm but my body temperature's fine. What could this mean?

If your body temperature is 94.8 after taking temperature under arm when you first wake up in morning could that mean low thyroid?
Possible: Have you had your thyroid tested? Body temperature is largely under control of the thyroid, and is usually lowest in the AM, raising throughout the day. If you suffer classic effects of low thyroid - weight gain, sluggishness, hair loss, consider having it tested. Best WishesSee 2 more doctor answers
What does it mean if I experience heart palpitations (pvcs) every time my body temperature increases--showering, exercising, eating, etc?
It may be normal: Reaction if any other symptoms associated or if you have any risk factor for heart disease. Looks like you already now it's pvc's. I had the same problem just after aerobic exercise. A stress echocardiogram recommended by a cardiologist. Neg results. And I still have some pvcs. Consult your primary care doctor.
I had a complete thyroidectomy two months ago. What is the mean starting dose for thyroid supplements? I have problems with low body temperature.
Depends on health: Healthy individuals are frequently started at 100 mcg of levothyroxine. Don't use armour thyroid. Less healthy individuals might be started at 50 mcg. The level is then checked every 6 to 8 weeks, as it takes quite a while to make a change, and stabilize. The medication is increased by 50 to 100 mcg at a time. Levothyroxine should be taken on an empty stomach, 1 hour before or 2 after a meal.See 1 more doctor answer
