Hypothermia: high risk individuals
When core body temperature drops to 35 C/95 F, a person’s normal body mechanisms to regulate temperature start to fail. This is called hypothermia. A person may experience shivering, changes in level of consciousness, and mental confusion. Individuals who are the highest risk to develop hypothermia are very young children, lean adults and people with impaired mental function (those afflicted with Alzheimer’s, intoxication). Nutrition, cardiovascular disease, and hypothyroidism also affect the body’s ability to regulate temperature.
