Everything You Need To Know About Normal Body Temperature

Body temperature is your body’s ability to generate and get rid of heat. By widening or narrowing your blood vessels, your body effectively cools or heats itself. With this clever system, your body keeps your temperature within a healthy range. 

The average body temperature is often said to be around 98.6°F (37°C). However, your ‘normal’ temperature can range anywhere from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C).

During the day, your temperature fluctuates constantly. Different factors influence your temperature, such as...

  • Time of day
    Your temperature increases during the day.

  • Age
    As you get older, your ability to regulate body temperature decreases.

  • Physical activity
    Heat production increases during exercising. Your body loses this heat through sweating.

With a digital thermometer, such as the DTR-1835, you can learn a lot about your normal body temperature. 

The DTR-1835 allows you to measure your temperature orally, axillary, or rectally. The last method is also safe to measure the baby’s temperature. The DTR-1835 is now available on Amazon. 

Always read the instructions first to make sure the measurement is as accurate as possible.
