Abstract

Objective

To determine if core body temperature (Tc) fluctuations occur in asymptomatic as well as symptomatic postmenopausal women.

Design

Tc was recorded with an ingested radiotelemetry pill in symptomatic postmenopausal women who had a hot flash in the laboratory, in symptomatic women who did not have a hot flash in the laboratory, and in asymptomatic postmenopausal women.

Results

There were no significant differences in mean Tc or Tc variation, as measured by the standard deviation, among the three groups.

Conclusion

Tc fluctuations are not unique to symptomatic postmenopausal women.
