LOW TEMPERATURE AGENCY?
Peace for the doctor. There are temperature measurements where I work. My body temperature is 31-32 degrees while others are at 34-35 degrees. when I sleep I always sleep above 11 o’clock. What should I do so that the doctor is normal again? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Body temperature results from complex processes. Many factors affect this body temperature, especially age, sex, nutrition and fluid intake, and activities undertaken. Other factors, such as the sensitivity of body temperature measurement tools, also the time and location of body temperature measurements can also affect their normal values.
In adults, the normal body temperature generally ranges from 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. However, here we describe the results of measurements of normal body temperature in adults depending on the measurement location:
Mouth: between 36.4 to 37.6 degrees Celsius Anal: between 37.0 to 38.1 degrees Celsius Armpit: between 35.2 to 36.9 degrees Celsius Ear: between 35.9 to 37.6 degrees Celsius According to various literature, the best way to measure body temperature is to place a thermometer in the mouth, ear and armpit area.
If your body temperature shows a number ranging from 31 to 32 degrees Celsius, and the examination has been done in an area of the body that really uses a standardized thermometer, then you can be classified as experiencing hypothermia. This condition can make you shiver, difficult to talk, deep and slow breathing, weakened pulse, impaired balance and coordination, weakness, confusion, difficulty increasing, cold skin, and even experiencing decreased consciousness. If not treated immediately, this condition can be life threatening.
It's just that, if it turns out that body temperature measurements have not been done properly, especially there did not appear any complaints as above, this seems to need to be confirmed again by a doctor's examination. Because it could be, your body temperature is low because the clothes you are wearing are not able to warm you (for example because they are thin, open, or wet) or because you have been staying in a cold place (air-conditioned) for too long. Old age, mental disorders, side effects of drug or alcohol consumption can also make your body temperature decrease. With a direct examination to a doctor or doctor of internal medicine, naturally the treatment can be done appropriately according to the underlying cause.
In the meantime, so that your body temperature returns to normal, we recommend you to:
Rest and exercise regularly Wear warm, dry, and closed clothing. Don't consume alcohol or any other drugs. Live a healthy lifestyle. Hope it helps.
