Thread: body temp & uti

    body temp & uti

    could a low body temp be either a cause or a sympton for uti?

    i had a uti treated late may [19th] and since then i have been monitoring my temp daily. i noticed that my body temp tends to run low [94-95] on a normal basis. a couple of days ago my temp was really low ~93. today my uti is back.

    could the low temp be associated w/ the uti?

    is it a symptom?
    or could be a risk factor?

    also, why is it i don't feel cold even when my body temp registers low?

    People with spinal cord injury have problems regulating their body temperature. It's very common for temps to run as low and 94-95. 93 is stretching it but I have never associated this as a cause of UTI. I suspect it's more of a coincidence.

    I usually get a low body temp when I have a UTI. around 94 or less. Im not sure why it is, possibly the UTI affects circulation??
    Last time i had a UTI I couldn't get my thermometer to register even after sitting under blankets all day my temp was still way low.

    I actually just coincidentally posted about this in another thread in this forum. Chad's temp plummets when he has a UTI. For him, it's a sure sign of a real UTI, not just cloudy urine.
