You are undoubtedly worried if you have a low body temperature. What to do with this, not everyone knows. And from what it generally goes down? Let's figure it out.
Body temperature in humans and all higher animals can be maintained at relatively constant levels, despite the changing temperature fluctuations in the environment. Heat formation occurs within us due to the continuous and infinitely occurring various exothermic reactions. They occur in all organs and tissues without exception, however, it is not the same intensively. In the tissues and organs that produce active work - in the muscle tissue, kidneys, liver, more heat is released than in the less active - bones, connective tissue, cartilage. The loss of heat by tissues and organs depends to a large extent on their permanent location: organs that are superficial, for example, skin or skeletal muscles, give off more heat and are cooled more than internal organs more protected from cooling. Hence it is clear that the temperature of different organs is different. And if the whole body has a lower body temperature, then what to do?
We all determine the indicator of the permissible normal temperature with a value of 36.6 ° C. But for most people, the numbers below or above the generally accepted standard may well be the norm. They feel themselves thus normally, such deviation does not affect in any way on their state of health.
But if, noticing the temperature drop, there is some discomfort and, perhaps, a decline in strength, then it is necessary to look for the cause of such a phenomenon.
Such conditions are often quite typical of pregnant and lactating women. If these factors are completely excluded, then what is the reduced body temperature? What to do? Search for reasons in:
- decreased immunity;
- reduced hemoglobin (you need to do a regular blood test);
- recently transferred diseases;
- neirotsirkuljatornoj dystonia, on gipotenzivnomu to type (arises owing to overfatigue, nedosypanija, increase in physical loading or a wrong mode of a human feed);
- intoxication of the body;
- internal bleeding;
- asthenic syndrome;
- propensity to lower blood pressure (you need to consult a cardiologist);
- Adrenal diseases, abnormalities in the endocrine system, hypothyroidism (hormone analysis, urgent ultrasound);
- Overexertion, severe fatigue associated with new responsibilities (lack of sleep at night, maternity, some slight exhaustion of the body through breastfeeding).
If no serious violations were found on the basis of the results of the examinations, then the treatment will most likely be based not on the usual medical methods, but on those related to the normalization of the way of life itself - hardening procedures, easy sports, physiotherapy exercises.
What to do if the temperature is 36 - you can use spa therapy, physiotherapy, balneotherapy.
When the temperature is 35, what to do will prompt folk methods. If this condition accompanies a constant exhausting stress, then it is necessary to quickly select the most effective soothing "helpers". In the first place, as a rule, preference is given to preparations that contain exclusively vegetable raw materials. Excellent results in the fight against debilitating stress showed ginseng, eleutherococcus, aralia (a group of such tonic drugs that are taken in the morning and at lunch, because they have some stimulating properties); Motherwort, hops, valerian, hawthorn (this is a group of soothing drugs that are taken at night). The duration of this course of treatment is a month.
If the herbal remedies could not cope with the symptom of "low body temperature", doctors advised that they should prescribe the correct medication.
