Child is feeling cold and is shivering at night. Cause and cure?

My daughter is 5 years old and has woke up the last 4 nights complaining she is really cold and has been shivering . She has been given extra blankets at night and still seems to have this problem. I am planning to check her temperature tonight if it happens again. Is this a sign of something I need to have checked out? Low blood sugar concerns me but we have no other signs.

is there any fever ?
if yes then she may have urinary tract infection or malaria or sepsis
so try to rule out all these factors by doing all investigations
