The ideal temperature for the human body varies but is always around 37°C. The body can drop to around 36°C and can cause mild to moderate shivering. This temperature, however is still quite normal and the body usually drops to this in sleep. It is usually considered that at any temperature under 35°C, the body drops into a state of hypothermia. At this temperature, body extremities turn numb, intensive shivering starts and skin discolouration can appear. When the body gets to around 34°C, the loss of movement of the bodies extremities can happen. Below this temperature drowsiness, confusion, sluggish bodily movements, hallucinations and loss of shivering will happen. Once the body reaches below 31°C, the bodies heart rhythm is likely to be disrupted.
These can all vary depending on the human and can be affected by factors such as how strong their cardiovascular system is. For example, an individual with a naturally low blood pressure may feel the effects of severe cold at a higher temperature to an individual who is in the peak of their physical condition.
It is always important to ensure that your temperature gets no lower than 35°C.
below 95 degrees
Low body temperature in a 2 year old can be dangerous. However, this depends on how low the body temperature is and what the cause is from. See your doctor if you have a child with consistently low body temperature.
If your baby's temperature drops below 97.7°F (36.5°C), they're considered to have hypothermia, or low body temperature. A low body temperature in babies can be dangerous, and, though rare, may lead to death
Hypothermia occurs when the body's temperature falls below the normal range. Some fluctuation in body temperature is normal; however hypothermia is dangerous, because the body temperature becomes too low for normal bodily functions to occur properly.
If the core temperature is that low then the patient is approaching hypothermia.
Hypothermia- A low body temperature
It depends on whether you're asking about body temperature or outside temperature. For body temperature, that's low to average. For outside temperature, on the other hand, that's rather hot.
Low body temperature (hypothermia) is potentially fatal. A healthy person's body temperature should be between 97°F (36.1°C) and 100°F (37.8°C). When the body's temperature falls below 95°F (35°C) it is in a state of hypothermia--the person should be wrapped in warm blankets (obviously not covering the nose and mouth), and medical assistance sought immediately.
Try explaining your question better. Are you implying temperature?
When your body temperature is lower than normal, it indicates a problem with your metabolism. Body systems can't function normally when metabolism is low.
Low body temperature during the winter slows down the need for nutrition. Most of the body's cellular reactions slow down as well. Many animals hibernate which puts their body temperature so low that they must sleep.
actually 98.6 is the normal temperature of the body... 97.8 is in the normal body temperature range
