low body temperature

I am so cold most of the time. There is a lot of water retention and other symptoms. Just saw my endo and she said I should go see a G.P. as she only deals with the thyroid and it sounds like a possible kidney problem. I have read that it could be like Wilson low temperature syndrome. I am not comfortable with her now as she also said that it is winter and cold out. But it is like this in the summer also. Thats when she told me to see a g.p. Anyone else get this run around? I have been feeling horrible for last 20 years.

Re: low body temperature

That's the problem with endos, even ones who purport to specialize in thyroid. They're very "by the book" thinkers who've been taught to deny most cases of hypothyroidism.

Has she done any thyroid tests? If you have results with their ranges to post, someone here or on the Thyroid Disorders board will be able to interpret what they mean. (If you've not had any thyroid tests, that's a whole other problem that must be dealt with.)

Let us know.

You actually might get better care with a GP than the garden variety of endo.
