Well, I’ve been really focused the last three months. I’ve follow a strict diet and gotten really good blood sugars. I had my quarterly doctors appointment yesterday and one thing stuck out like a sore thumb was my temperature. Low. Two weeks ago, I was sick. I am hardly ever sick. My wife had just been diagnosed with strep, and I had some symptoms, so I went to get a checkup. I had checked my temperature at home, but it kept measuring 96-97. I figured the thermometer batteries had gone bad. At the doctors office, I measure 97.6. Yesterday, they took my temperature again, 97.4.
I always have had a slightly high average normal temperature, 99-99.5. My temperature is low. I have had some fatigue and exercise recovery issues. But beyond that I’ve not noticed anything.
Have any of you had lowered body temperatures or hypothyroid issues? Do you believe they are low carb or diet related? There are some, like Jenny Ruhl who beleive that low carb downregulates the thyroid and can cause hypothyroid. Do you believe it?
