what results in heat gainM - W +- R +- C +- K - E > 0
what results in heat loss M - W +- R +- C +- K - E < 0
WHAT does a telemetry pill do ?it sits in digestive tract and can be ingested at night and sends signals when it sits in digestive tract to the receiver then measure core temperature (2x as big as paracetamol)
