Assessing Thyroid Function without Blood Tests
Some physicians say it is more accurate to assess thyroid function by measuring body temperature
in the morning before getting out of bed. This method, known as the Barnes Basal Temperature
Chart, is believed to be especially useful in the treatment of obesity.
1) If you are male or a non-menstruating female, take a digital thermometer or an oral mercury
thermometer (which has been shaken down and placed at the bedside the previous evening) and
place it in your armpit for 10 minutes immediately upon awakening while lying quietly in bed. Repeat
the test three days in a row. Normal temperature is 97.8 degrees to 98.2 degrees. If your temperature
is low, your thyroid gland is probably under active.
DO NOT use an electric blanket for 24
hours prior to taking your temperature.
2) If you are a female who menstruates, do the above test on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th day of your period in
the same manner.
3) If you have a very young child and you are unable to take his armpit temperature, you can take
the rectal temperature for two minutes. Normal would be 1 degree higher than the above, that is
98.8 degrees to 99.2 degrees.
4) Record your results below and e-mail this record to your health professional.
