For all of us, a high temperature is a cause for worry, sometimes for panic.

However, if the temperature is lower than usual - is this a problem?

Is this dangerous and should we seek medical advice if the deviations from the norm are small?

Here's how experts answer these questions.

When the temperature drops to 35 degrees and below, negative consequences can actually develop.

It should be taken into account that such a temperature level concerns the "core" temperature.

It can most reliably be seen when measuring it in the rectum.

A low body temperature is considered a symptom of some disease, and not an independent pathology, unless, of course, we are talking about hypothermia.

Without a thermometer, you cannot easily determine that your temperature has dropped below normal.

The symptoms of such a condition are non-specific and may overlap with those of other diseases.

There are many reasons why the temperature can drop below normal.

Usually this symptom is accompanied by others.

According to experts, the most common reasons for the temperature to drop below the norm are the following: insufficient nutrition;

endocrine disorders;



prolonged immobilization, i.e. immobilization of a damaged or diseased part of the body, for example when applying a splint;

neurological diseases;

low blood sugar (hypoglycemia);

depression, writes.

If you detect a low body temperature without other symptoms, measure it several times in a different way, for example in the mouth.

Continue to measure it at least 2 times a day and if it is lowered after a few measurements, make an appointment with your GP.
