Does Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) cause an increase in Temperature?
In my experience this has been a non-issue and not the method I use to determine treatment efficacy. However, if a person has hypothyroidism they probably will have had low body temperature associated with that. In that case, a rise in body temperature may indicate that the disease process is reversing. This certainly is a possibility as one completes a thorough treatment plan including LDN.
Another case where taking temperature may be important is while monitoring for ovulation. The temperature naturally goes up during ovulation so it’s important to establish a baseline while using LDN to monitor for any possible changes.
