Constant Feeling of Being Cold

Updated on May 26, 2010

Constant Feeling of Being Cold

Are you always feeling cold? Do you find that no matter what the temperature is you have that constant feeling of being cold but have no signs of a fever or any other symptoms of sickness? Constantly feeling cold could be due to something as simple as your size and weight to conditioning (how you grew up or the “state of being” that you’ve become accustomed to). Both of which can be changed. If you are like me, you grew up in a warm climate and a warm home. In my home, no lie, we set our thermostat to 80 degrees in the summertime. It makes sense though, if its 95 degrees outside, then a thermostat set at 80 inside is comfortable. Anyway now that I am an adult, my thermostat in the summer time is no where near 80, it’s more like 72 and possibly 70 if it gets too hot. That though is a basic case of conditioning. I always felt cold as a young adult when I would go to other homes or buildings where the AC was set lower than 80. There was nothing wrong with me physically. I was just conditioned by my warmer climate and lifestyle growing up. I’ve been told that a person’s size and weight could have something to do with how they feel temperature wise as well. For instance, a small framed woman weighing in at around 110 pounds might normally feel colder than a 200 pound man. I don’t have any personal experience with that one since I am of average height and weight.

Constant Feeling of Being Cold


Then there are the more serious reasons for constantly feeling cold; reasons for which you should see a doctor. One of the most common reasons is anemia. This is a blood condition where you have a low number of red blood cells or the red blood cells that you have have a low hemoglobin count. This will cause some to feel very tired but others with the condition have been known to feel cold. This condition is also known as have “low iron” since hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. With enough oxygen being carried throughout your body, you can imagine how this would effect one’s body temperature. Another top condition associated with constantly feeling cold is diabetic hypoglycemia. This is related to the amount of insulin in your body and is where we get the term insulin shock. If you are not a diabetic this may not be why you experience the constant feeling of being cold, if you are or have a family history then see your doctor immediately for proper care and information. There are several reasons for someone to always feel cold some serious and some not so serious. I’ve listed only a few of the top reasons in this article. Hopefully is sets you on track to finding out a solution for you.
