Brief Answer: Restore the balance quickly. Detailed Answer: Dear sir, hypo parathyroidism is more common to cause gypocalcemia rather than hypothermia. still if there is low temp try to check thyroid as well. restore calcium and thyroid balance quickly. supplement vitamin D and keep her warm with room heaters or blankets meanwhile.
