Hey everyone any ideas, please help....last week went to donate blood and my temperature was 35 celcius....have to be 35.8 inorder to give blood. I am constantly cold...had alot of tests done with no results...Although a few years back I did remember freezing myself outside while fixing a water break, in the middle of winter...Could I have done something then to cause all of this......HELP>>>
Generally a feeling of always being cold is related to either low iron or a Thyroid hormone imbalance. Ask the doc to run a blood test for electrolytes, iron, and a complete Thyroid Panel. They usually only want to do a TSH, but have them do a complete panel and ask that Thyroid antibody test be done, too. Combined, these tests will tell you if you have an iron/ Thyroid problem and will allow the doc to give you a good diagnoses. good luck
I am five feet, five inches, and weigh 140 pounds...I understand the weight issue, as I competed in bodybuilding last year, and know that being thin with little body fat really affects your body temperature...but now I back to normal, and still cold....
Sorry for asking this, ( I know how female's are on the subject ); how much do you weight? If underweight, or at least thin for your height, cold chills could simply be your body reacting to that. A nice sweater would work wonders.
How your core body temperate would be effected by that, I honestly can't guess.
Hi. My husband stays cold ALL the time. Even in the summer when it is so hot outside (we live in Mississippi temp get high and humidity even higher). We argue all summer about the thermostat on the AC. In the winter we get along okay because I tend to stay cold then too! He had enlarged thyroids which were discovered accidently in a CT on his neck and shoulder for completely different issues. His blood work showed over-active thyroid also. But, being a man, the doc prescribed meds and wanted to see him again about the enlarged thyroids and he never took the meds and never went back for follow up. He said he felt fine, so he wasn't sick and wasn't starting that taking pills everyday when he felt okay because if he did, next thing you knew he would be sick for real. I would agree with previous post and request thyroid being checked.
