Low body temperature: Cold weather can be risky for anyone, but especially for older people. Almost everyone is familiar with winter hazards such as broken bones from falls on ice or breathing difficulties triggered by cold air. But the winter chill can also lead to a temperature drop inside the body that can be deadly if not found quickly and treated properly. This lowered body temperature, usually brought on by staying in a cool place for a long time, is called hypothermia (hi-po-ther-mee-uh). It is a special problem for older people, who often have other illnesses or take medications that can interfere with the body’s ability to regulate its temperature.
