Basal body thermometer
Under ideal conditions, the basal body temperature gives an indication of what is occurring during optimal thyroid output. Further, it gives a good indication of what is occurring at the cellular level by measuring the body’s metabolic response.
A temperature between 97.6 and 98.0 °F denotes a normally functioning thyroid. A temperature lower than 97.6 °F may indicate a low functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism). High basal body temperatures above 98.6 °F are less common but may indicate hyperthyroidism. Remember that the test must be conducted under optimal conditions in order to be an effective indicator of the thyroid state.
