Check levels: A good starting point would be to recheck thyroid hormones and a CBC. Other things to check would be B12 and glucose. The rest depends upon her exam, the initial lab findings and other factors (quality of sleep, other medical conditions)

Check thyroid level: Has she has her thyroid levels rechecked recently? If not, she should see her physician or an endocrinologist and have her level checked.
