I posted awhile back asking about low body temperature and got a few responses from you with the same problem. What is happening now is it takes a real drop in the late afternoon to about 95 degrees and I feel cool and clammy. I had an adrenal challenge test done and was told they were fine. Anyone have this afternoon dip and what helps to keep the body temp normal? I know how important a normal temp is for detox and metabolism. I just cant seem to get to where it needs to be. Any ideas?? (thyroid was fine)Thanks  D

HI D.  Both Lyme and thyroid disorders can cause a low body temperature.

Which thyroid tests did you have done?  It is important to have the Free T3, Free T4 (besides the T3 and T4) and thyroid antibodies tested in addition to the normal panel.  They are not usually done but are necessary for a comprehensive view.  If antibodies are present, other results may be normal but treatment is warranted.  Even if your results are in the normal range, they may not be normal for you.  Some people have Lyme and a thyroid disorder.

Lyme disease can affect thyroid, adrenal, and hormone function.  I believe anyone who has Lyme should have this testing done.

She just did the T4 but no T3. Are they normally both done, dont know why she just did the T4 but it was fine My TSH was 1/2 point higher that normal and she said that did not mean much as the T4 was ok. I went to an endocrinologist and all he did was the adrenal challenge and said it was fine. What does the T3 measure?? I do not hae a LLMD so that is part of the problem, they dont know what to look for here. Thanks D
