Well, Winter is coming! And there is more cold on the way. Instead of buying a 550 fill down coat to wear at work or hiding under a pile of blankets while the rest of the family comfortably enjoys the ambient temperature, focus on fixing the root cause!
There’s a high chance that your thyroid function may be low. Luckily this is something that is easily tested for, and, for the most part, is easily treatable! Good news.
Since your thyroid is an energy center for your body, those with low thyroid levels may also feel some slumps in energy mid-day, get cold hands and feet, have trouble waking early in the morning, suffer from hair loss & brittle nails, and have a lower body temperature.
One easy indicator someone may need advanced testing is if their body temperature is consistently lower than the standard 98.6.
