This is Dr. David
what do you mean you have a bad thyroid gland.
have you consulted with an endocrinologist
and gotten blood work to check on your thyroid hormone levels?
what is your most recent TSH level?

I'm not quite sure how this works I assumed I would check my e-mail and you give me an opinion an educated guess so to speak I asked one of my older friends I'm 50 he says I'm not allowed in this issue the long and short of it is I work in Yuma Arizona it's very hot and there are times it seemed a more comfortable driving with the AC off in the window down rather than getting in and out of my truck at work going from hot to cold I'm guessing the thyroid may have some issue with it or I'm just getting older thank you for your time I will check back in my e-mail later this evening or tomorrow

what do you mean "you are not allowed in this issue"?
your hyperthyroidism can cause excessive thyroid in your body. usually this causes you to be hot all the time.
you need to get your TSH levels checked to see if the medication you are taking is working.
are you methimazole to help decrease your thyroid hormone function?
