My T3, T4, RT3 and TSH are all fine yet my afternoon temperature hovers around 97.5, or so.
I personally don’t think it is as diagnostic as others do. As with all things related to the body, there is always a degree of individual variation.[/quote]
ok… just to confirm we are on the same page, you are stating that you have blood tests showing your RT3 is under 12, your FT3 is 3.3 to 3.8, your TSH is under 1, AND your body temp maxes out at 97.5? The reason I ask is that your definition of “fine” and the definition of “ideal” could be two very different things… you may think your tests are fine because they show within the so called “normal” lab range, but are actually far from ideal and are in fact showing you that you do have a thyroid issue that needs to be addressed.
that being said, yes there are other systems that impact body temperature and yes, there is always a degree of individual variation, but Thyroid is one of the main drivers of metabolism, and metabolism is a main driver of body temps.
