Answer by Dr. Harsh Abbott  on Fri 09, Oct 2009 08:49am:

Hypothermia (drop in body temperature due to loss of body heat) is caused due to 3 reasons, first is accidental (unexpected cold exposure), primary (environmental exposure, with no underlying medical condition) and secondary (low body temperature resulting from a medical illness). Due to loss of body heat the functions of vital organs like heart and brain slows down and sometimes may be even life threatening. Thanks
