Hello all, first time here. I have *not* been diagnosed as hypothyroid but was interested to know what you would expect to happen to basal body temperature if starting to become hypothyroid?
Guess I may be in an unusual position as I've had blood tests done that confirm TSH and thyroid antibodies are both "high", but I don't have any subjective symptoms. (I'm diabetic, TSH is routinely tested). The decision at the moment is not to treat and repeat tests in 6 months because I don't have symptoms, but to go back sooner if they start to appear.
I've started monitoring temperature since then and generally basal is about 36 celsius, which I believe is considered low, but maybe that's just normal for me.
I'm trying to establish if there's a risk of hypothermia, as my temperature was 35.1 celsius after being out running on a warm day here. I'd expect that would go lower as the weather cools down in the coming months.
