    Body Temperature Question

    Shop Now
    I know it was most recently discussed on the tator thread, to chart your temps, but I was afraid my question might get lost.

    So I was wondering, what exactly do our temps tell us? I know it's lower in the morning, higher later in the day. But I am wondering how much should I expect it to rise during the day, and when should I be concerned if it isnt changing much?

    I dont have a normal pattern yet, but usually like 97.5 up to 98.4 however today it was 97.3 at 5:15 am (which may have been earlier than I have taken it before) but it only went up to 97.5 at 7:30pm (an hour after dinner)

    I am not very consistent with my times, so maybe that is one of the keys to the equation.

    Thanks!

    Lower than normal temps may be an indication of thyroid issues since thyroid function and hormones help regulate a normal body temperature.

    There isna range that is considered to be normal of course and an occasional lower number is not necessarily a bad thing. It's a long-term trend of being well below normal that indicates that there may be issues.
