Ummmm... Wouldn't your blood temp stay at 98.6 with the exception of
when you have a fever or hypothermia? And if your blood is at the
constant temperature wouldn't the viscosity remain the same IF you are
claiming the change in viscosity is temperature related?
Hydration would seem to be a much more likely reason.
Theoretically, yes, but the blood for tests is drawn from
the very outer layer and may be more affected by the ambient
temperature than blood more insulated by surface fat and
Yes it may be more likely the actual state of the capillaries, being
more open in the heat and helping the blood flow more easily.
Which makes me wonder what you'd do if you had diabetes and Raynaud's
