Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a reduced availability of plasma free fatty acids (FFA) would impair human temperature regulation during cold exposure. Seven seminude male subjects were immersed on two occasions in 18C water for 90 min or until their rectal temperature T sub re decreased to 35.5C. The immersion occurred after 2 h of intermittent oral ingestion of either nicotinic acid (NIC) or a placebo (PLAC). These results indicate that a reduced availability of FFA does not impair human temperature regulation during cold water immersion.
