Is a body temperature of 96.9 normal?

The answer is: probably, if you're an adult. Body temperature readings can vary depending on how you take your temperature. For example, in an adult with no symptoms of illness, a 96.9 armpit reading wouldn't be considered abnormal at all. Mild hypothermia is defined as a core body temperature below 95F.

Correspondingly, is a body temp of 97 normal?

The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). Some studies have shown that the "normal" body temperature can have a wide range, from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). A temperature over 100.4°F (38°C) most often means you have a fever caused by an infection or illness.
