Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.

TT mid range, FT not tested

FSH implies some degree of primary hypogonadism.
LH does not, but LH labs can be variable.
Other things not tested…

Temperature was 94.64 in AM? - very low
Also need temperature mid-afternoon.
