High and Low Body Temperatures

Though high temperature readings warrant medical attention, low readings are equally as important. Low body temperatures in young children or seniors can signify metabolic disorders, low blood sugar or sepsis, a severe infection of the blood stream that can be fatal. Be sure to consult your doctor if you or your child experiences extremely high or low body temperatures.
