    I’m male, 25, and in good shape, more on the muscular side than slim runner build, yet I’ve found out that I have low body temperature (between 96/97). This shocked me, because I’m always flushed, rosy cheeks, wear little layers outside. I’m the most heat intolerant out of everyone I know; wearing shorts in winter, and stripping off layers as soon as I get indoors, getting rosy cheeks from the smallest amount of physical exertion etc….I thought that low body temperature meant feeling cold all the time, but for me it’s the opposite. One thing I do notice is that my hands and feet do tend to be on the cool/colder side, but I just presumed that was because of bad circulation or my lack of layers. Can anyone clear things up here. I’m so confused…


    I know for me that if I don’t keep a thermometer under my tongue after the beep goes off for about a minute, my temp will read about of few tenths to half a degree lower. Also, my temp will vary by where exactly I hold the thermometer under my tongue – I wouldn’t have thought it would make a difference but it does and a half degree is significant, at least to me.

    If it isn’t that at all, I am unsure of what is going on but wouldn’t worry too much if you don’t have the other symptoms of low metabolism.


    Low body temp = low thyroid

    Heat intolerance = bad

    Body heat = good

    Cold hands/feet = bad

    High temps signifies adequate heat production, and this means you’re generally warmer. Heat intolerance is different, and shows maybe a lack of physiological flexibility
