Try: 37{\celsius} and ...
the first space after a command will always be ignored if you don't put
the command in braces.
To get a small space after the last numeral, put something like

\renewcommand{\degC}{\,\celsius\ }

in your preamble and use 37\degC and. The "\ " at the end also adds a
forced space, so that you should be able to use the "\degC" command
without extra {} around.

you could also try to modify the \celsius command in SIunits accordingly
by adding "\," before the oC and "\ " at the end of the command.
