About the Author:

Denis Wilson, MD described Wilson 's Temperature Syndrome in 1988 after observing people with symptoms of low thyroid and low body temperature, yet who had normal blood tests. He found that by normalizing their temperatures with T3 (without T4) their symptoms often remained improved even after the treatment was discontinued. He was the first doctor to use sustained-release T3.

    My temperature in the afternoon is 96.4•. What treatment is there to raise my temperature? My pulmonologist asked me if I had had any fevers recently. I told him that if my temperature was 98.6 I had a fever since I run in the 96 range. Do you have any suggestions?

      Hi Shiv :),
      I haven’t noticed a correlation between hair loss and blood type, though I know that heredity can play a role. I have seen some people experience hair regrowth when their body temperatures were normalized.
      Good luck :)

    I noticed getting fatigue in 2011. My temps have always been low but now 96.8 in bed before getting up. I am always cold. Hands and feet frozen. Worst of all my fingers look like prunes my hands and arms are wrinkly and super dry the last few years. My thyroid is normal and no hashi.
    Should I have an MD rather than a naturopath?

      A knowledgeable Naturopathic Doctor or medical doctor can be helpful. Some doctors will choose to start with herbs and nutrients in their protocol, and some may use T3. It’s always a good idea to interview a new doctor in advance to be sure they have experience with Wilson Temperature Syndrome treatments. There is a search feature on the website to find a doctor in your area:

    I’ve been taking my temperature going on a month now and I know something isn’t right with my body. My thermometer reads 96.4 and I’ve been having days in which I feel like I’m suffering from hypothermia as well as fatigue to the point I sleep all day. I’ve notified my doctor about my symptoms and its like I’m being overlooked. Can you tell me what I should do?

    • Dr. Denis Wilson February 3, 2015 at 3:31 pm - Reply

      I recommend that you find a doctor that recognizes the importance and clinical significance of low body temperatures. You can try looking at the list of medical providers listed on our website under the “Doctors” tab.

    Would the symptom of a cold nose go hand in hand with cold hands and feet that accompany WTS?

    • Dr. Denis Wilson March 29, 2015 at 3:19 pm - Reply

      Yes, that’s possible.

    I suffer from insomnia, poor nail health, dry skin, head aches that often come Around noon although I drink an abnormal amount of water that is above the average intake a human needs. I also suffer from anxiety, I have a lot of trouble staying warm or cooling off when too hot, also fatigue, I have trouble remembering easy things, I have a low drive to accomplish tasks, and my temp is below the norm by .5-1°. Do you think that I might have Wilton’s syndrome? Any suggestions? I’ve suffered with these symptoms from about 9tb grade, I would really love to be cured, living life like this can be agonizing…
    Thank you,

    I shared your link on a facebook group for candida called candida support group and information group.

    You helped me back in 1997 and pretty much gave me my life back. Along with being on the candida diet. It was amazing i wasn’t on the meds all that long but dramatic results.

    I just had to go back to the candida diet again because i went back to old habits.

    My doctor at the time retired and as long as i ate right i felt great. Now I’m back to the brain fog and a little over weight. After a really bad cat bite I’ve been on antibiotics for almost 11 months.

    My body temp is still lower than normal but not like before.
    Most doctors have never heard of Wilson’s syndrome
    After the T-3 i also had mercury fillings removed and that helped just a little but im happy they are gone.

    I signed up for your news letter. I just wanted people to know that it is real. You’re not crazy even when your doctor gives you that look. It is worth the blood work and taking the meds. It’s really not that hard to take your temp a few times a day. And well worth it.

    I just stumbled upon this site. I have always had a lower then average body temp. I rarely get a fever even when very sick. I have mentioned it to doctors, when I get very sick and they take my temp I tell them my average is lower then the norm. Never has a Doc told me this might be something to be concerned over. I usually use a digital thermometer. its been as low as 94 I would guess my average to be 96 but after reading the info on this site I’m going to Track my temp with the printout you provided and go from there. My biggest complaint is fatigue, but I have many of the other symptoms on the list. My thyroid was checked a few years ago, they said it was normal. I hear lots of people complaining of feeling cold, I have the opposite I am always hot, it seems like, if I’m doing something like cleaning my house I will be dripping with sweat {the house is not hot I keep the air down pretty low 75*} I get lots of headaches, I get sick very easily, I feel like I’m always sick. I’m 39, with two teenagers that I can’t keep up with anymore. I used to run everyday and eat very healthy but now I’m too tired or unwell enough to cook a good meal let alone exercise.

    I knew something was going on with myself, went to dr, we did Thyroid testing TSH 3.98 freeT4 0.75, started 50mcg of Levothyroxine, blood test one month later. TSH 1.96 T4 0.95. He never tested for T3, shall I ask for that to be done? Fatigue has improved a little, but I am still freezing, and recently noticed edema, weight not budging…I am very diligent….5’3.5″ 119…which is a gradual increase from 112… Stumbled on your website…printed out temp sheet 2:00 afternoon 97.4…Do I bring this up to my Dr. or monitor temps for a month and see. I have a feeling this is Wilson’s as I am very in tuned to my body. Can you do the WT3 protocol while on T4 for low thyroid?
    Thank you so much for taking my questions.

      Hi Kelli,
      You can refer your physician to my website and I will consult with him without charge if he is interested in learning more. Or you can find a doctor on our search tool here:
      You can take the dietary supplements while on T4, or you can be switched to T3. Be sure to support the adrenals in the process.
      Best of Luck!

    Positive for antibodies (Hashimotos) …..not under medical care yet or on any type of medication…..would the WT3 protocol be right for this condition? I am terrified to see an Endocrinologist…..I have heard the patient/doctor relationship is very poor. I don’t need the extra stress! In the meantime, supplementing with Selenium 200 mcg + Vit E, Digestive Enzymes, Vit. D3, Milk Thistle, Beta 1, 3D Glucan, Vit. B12…vegetarian 20 yrs…age: 62. Doing research….your reply is appreciated. :)

      People with Hashimoto’s tend to tolerate T3 therapy as well as anyone else.
