Question: Body Temp

I was told by a friend that Japanese people have a lower body temperature than Western people. I was just wondering if there was any truth to this? :)

User avatar Dear Goulash,

Body temp is not a constant figure, it is a range above the highest limit of which a person is considered febrile and below the lowest limit of which a person is considered hypothermic.

i don't think that japenese people are an exception to this rule.

Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
