Low grade fever/higher BG

So…I’ve been feeling pretty good lately. I’ve had a few higher than usual BGs (esp considering my diet as of late) but I was always able to bring them down by later in the day–just felt a little frustrated about it all.

Anyway, I went to give blood the other day and the Central Blood Bank turned me away for having a temp of 99.7. Again, I have felt good. I know I’ve not been drinking a lot lately, so at best, I might be a tad dehydrated (which is easy for me to do). My question is this–can dehydration cause a low grade temp? Curious!

Low grade temps can be casued by dehydration. But there are also other causes. Make sure you have no other issues (wounds, cuts, etc) going on.
