Normal Body Temperature?
What is the normal human temperature? if under 36 is it still normal?
Thank you for the question.
In general, the normal adult body temperature is between 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. The normal value of this body temperature can vary depending on many factors, such as age, gender, and activities undertaken. The difference in the location of body temperature measurements can also affect the difference in these body temperature values.
You just said to experience hypothermia (low body temperature) if your body temperature is lower than 35 degrees Celsius. If your body temperature is still in the range of 35 to 36.5 degrees Celsius, then this condition is often natural, for example if you are in a cold area or are wearing wet clothes. It could also be, body temperature decreases below the normal value due to age that is too old or too young, fatigue, side effects of drugs, excessive alcohol consumption, mental disorders, hypothyroidism, diabetes, malnutrition, neurological disorders, and so on.
Decrease in body temperature needs to be checked directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine if the temperature drops far (less than 35 degrees Celsius), especially accompanied by an abnormal heartbeat, chills, difficulty speaking, weakened heartbeat, slow and shallow breathing, impaired balance and coordination, disorders memory, mental confusion, and decreased consciousness. If the condition is still mild, then you can first overcome this condition by making sure the patient is wearing dry and warm clothes, staying active, don't panic, and don't also give him any medication.
Hope this helps ...
