Chronic low body temperature, also known as Wilson's Syndrome, is related to many syndromes. It is found in many cases of allergies, apathy, chronic fatigue, "brain fog", "personal failure", depression, dizziness, hypoglycemia, lethargy, passive/aggressive syndromes, skin and joint conditions, sleep disorders, sexual dysfunction, past sexual abuse, yeast problems, porphyria, and many other poorly defined chronic low health states. Obviously, not all chronic problems are related to chronic low body temperature; but it may be prudent to measure one's body temperature on a routine basis to see if this is a possibility.

I found it interesting because it says "allergies, skin and joint disorders, brain fog, lethargy" Which are just a few symptoms that align with Celiac.

The disorder that they mention with this condition is called Wilson's Syndrome. When I do a search for that I came up with this site that lists symptoms of wilson's : http://www.mall-net.com/cathcart/wilsons.html Check out the list it is REALLY mindblowing how many symptoms are the same as celiac.

If you have a body temperature of less than 98.6 F. and some of the following symptoms you probably have Wilson's Syndrome. This condition involves a disorder where the cells of the body are unable to convert the inactive thyroid hormone, T4, into the more active hormone, T3. Wilson's Syndrome itself does not alter the thyroid hormone tests. It may exist in association with true hypothyroidism, however. In these cases, thyroid tests may be abnormal but the usually prescribed thyroid hormones may not entirely solve the problem.

I know I run a below normal temperature usually and when I get gluten I get a low grade fever.

I was just curious how many other folks out there run a below normal temp regularly.

I have also found several articles calling Wilson's Syndrome "bogus" So not sure what to think now, but many still believe it is a genuine condition. I would just LOVE to ask a doctor about it. I'm curious now.............especially since so many symptoms are like ours.

I have run a low temperature for years and just thought that is what was normal for me. Gues it all ties into the rest of the picture, huh? It is never over 97 and I seldom have a fever with anything. I am cold ALL the time except in summer which is very short where I live in VERY northern Wisconsin. I have a thyroid problem for which I take Synthroid, fibromyalgia and have a gluten and casein intolerance. Interesting. Barbara

Yes my body temp is usually between 97-98. I also can get cold pretty easy. I was told it is probably due to my thyroid being off.

Just happened upon this post. Yes, I run low as well, 97.8, as do my mom and sister. Mom has celiac disease, and my sister believes she has it though blood test come out negative.

This is very interesting. Some of my friends are doctors. I will ask next time I see them.

Yes, mine's lower, too. Weird... I don't know the Fahrenheit though, since we measure it in Celsius. But still, it's under...

Especially, when I glutened myself accidentaly.

I do not know my temp, but I am ALWAYS freezing. No matter where I go...I am always bundled up in many layers. In blood tests that I have taken, my iron levels have been very very low. I assumed my being cold was related to low iron and anemia?

I am just really glad that my boyfriends car has heated seats, or else I would almost never leave the house.....I am always cold and always bundeled up, and my hands are always really cold to the point where it affects my typing(makes me slower). I should start keeping my temp. on a regular basis and when I go back to the doctor ask about it

I'm not usually all that cold but my temp is usually low 97s. I have asked about it being related to thyroid but told that my labs are all really good in that dept, and that supposedly a lot of people like to blame the thyroid because it's an easy target (not my words). Anyway, I tried taking my basal temp first thing in the morning every day for a week and kept getting 97.2 - 97.4. Whenever I go to the doctor I have a lower temp like that and have asked about it but they always shrug it off. I first looked into Wilson's Syndrome about a year ago because some of my liver enzymes in my labs were lower than the low end and I wondered if there was something wrong there. When you ask a doc about having too low of enzymes in your liver they all say, nothing's wrong. Then why do they have a low end of the range? I don't get that.

It's is very common to have a body temperature under 98.6. Very low can be a sign of hypothyroidism, but in the 97 range is still normal. The distribution of body temperatures in people is very wide, and the average is really just an average.
