Why do I often feel cold?

Why do I often feel cold but have no fever?

Actually, this is a very common question, but it is not an easy question to answer.

One of the major reasons of feeling cold you should think about is Hypothyroidism, a deficiency of thyroid hormones.

Throid hormones are produced by the thyroid gland that is located below the Adam’s apple, in the lower part of the neck.

Throid hormones are responsible for regulating temperature and metabolism in every cell of our body. Therefore, if your body isn’t getting enough thyroid hormones, your body’s metabolism slows.

Basic Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

  • Feeling cold
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Dry skin

If you have these basic symptoms of hypothyroidism, consult your doctor!

Hypothyroidism can be easily treated by daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone - levothyroxine (thyroxine). This replaces the hormone which your thyroid gland is not producing.
