In brief: Thyroid

Having low body temperature means you have a low metabolism. Heat is produced when body burns calories to create energy, and this heat contributes to your body temp.
Having a slow metabolism and low body temp is very suggestive of underactive thyroid function. This isn't always seen on blood tests. If labs are normal, seek help from an md who practices holistic or functional medicine.
