I have been tracking my AM body temps as soon as I wake up for the past month. My average temp is 95.3-95.8. I check again early afternoon and it averages 96.3-96.8. Sometimes it but rarely is over 97 degrees. I have all the classics symptoms of being hypothyroidism that I don’t need to list here as I’m sure this group is very educated on this topic. I had the full thyroid panel and everything came back normal according to my primary care physician. Because of the low body temp I requested to have my iodine levels tested.
My levels were 32.1mcg/dL reference range is 51-107 mcg/dL. I have read the sticky on treating low iodine levels and it was very helpful. My question is could I be hypothyroid with normal levels and based on this information should I start iodine supplements. I have Lugols Solution 2%. My biggest issues are fatigue, joint pain, hair thinning and crazy cold intolerance. Any additional advice or suggestions are appreciated. Here is most most recent labs from Quest.
