Low Body Temperature Question

Feb 23, 2001

I have heard conflicting information on this and wanted to ask your opinion. Some doctors have stated that many HIV+ people have low body temperatures. 1) Does this happen? 2) If it does, when during the disease progression does it occur? (i.e., shortly after acute infection, during chronic infection, during full-blown AIDS? 3) Can this happen during recent infection, say during the first 3-6 months? Thanks for all your help !

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Low body temperature is a very nonspecific finding. Most people with acute infection have fever. MH
