Tired and cold: It is most likely you have not been given enough thyroid medication. If you are sure that your thyroid blood levels are OK - (how long since they were last measured?) - please see your doctor to work out why you are tired and cold. Thyroid labs should be measured every 3-6 months.

Simple....: Follow with your PMD. The intervention depends on your serial levels...not one set of number.
