Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Your body temperature is extremely low and at it's lowest average, could be life-threatening as you have hypothermia. We cannot say why this is happening but it could be due to your poor heart health and you may have metabolic syndrome which can lead to heart disease and diabetes. Also known as Syndrome X and Insulin Resistance Syndrome, it includes a combination of criteria to be diagnosed.

If you have the following symptoms, then you have metabolic syndrome.

1) Central Obesity – men whose waist line is 40 inches or more, women 35 inches or more (use a tape measure and go around your belly) or a BMI above 30 (check a BMI chart for height and weight)
2) Elevated triglycerides – greater than 150 mg/dl (although many say above 100 mg/dl)
3) Elevated fasting blood sugar/glucose – greater than 100 mg/dl
4) Reduced HDL – under 50 mg/dl for women and under 40 mg/dl for men
5) Elevated blood pressure – greater than 135/85 mmHg
Additionally, you may have elevated fasting insulin, elevated C-reactive protein (CRP-hs), elevated fibrinogen, fatty liver, polycystic ovarian disease, and acanthosis nigrans (dark patches of skin commonly around the neck). Research shows that 75 percent of type II diabetics and 50 percent of people with coronary heart disease have metabolic syndrome.

Anon, please discuss your low body temperature with your doctor and ask for testing to see why this is happening exactly and consequently get a treatment plan.
