Is it just me or does anyone else have trouble regulating body temperature?
That's a picture of my youngest grandbaby in my avatar. She is my pre-e-cious.
All my life I was cold until I had WLS (3 yr postop). I think its the fat burning that keeps me warm and I am not going thru menopause as I did that at 32.....many moons ago however I am in Florida and maybe its just easier here. I have the air on but I have been cleaning and exercising since 11, its now 3 so move around and get your blood flowing.
...this is such a cliche- have you had your labs checked???low iron or anemia may cause trouble regulating body temp- i go from hot to cold and cold to hot all day long...
constantly cold may be a sign of anemia or low iron...or you may just be "cold blooded" (in rick james' voice)...
However, I will say that since I'm working on maintenance eating and increasing my calories a little bit it has gotten slightly better...

I am almost 5 years post, and like almost everyone who has posted a question, I was always cold. After stabilizing and putting on some weight, I can tolerate the cold. There are a few times that I have to put on the flannel pj's and socks to bed even in the summer. Also like kirbylou, was put on thyroid meds after experiencing fatigue that sometimes lasted a week after a trip. But one of my biggest concerns is that my feet still turn blue. I noticec that while in a hot shower and have one leg propped up (shaving), the foot that I am bearing my weight on is blue. Once I switch legs my foot pinks up and the other one I stand on turns blue. It worries me that there is some type of circulation problem or maybe a type of neuropathy.
Still blue in Texas!
I am freezing as well, I am sitting here 2 pr of socks on pjs and long sleeve top and wool gown
and a little heater at my feet so yep we all must be cold . I lost another 20 lbs this spring
by watching my weight and counting calories ...It's summer now we when to the beach it was heaven the sun the warm I could have moved there to stay warm ...
My RNY was in 2007 I found out I am anemic about 2.5 months ago . I am taking 2 doses of iron a day and B12 ...I'm still cold even when I wasn't anemic I was cold..
