Will thyroid medication ALWAYS set the body back into

Customer Question
feeling ok as far as...
Will thyroid medication ALWAYS set the body back into feeling ok as far as internal body temperature is concerned. Example, feeling cold and then taking thyroid medication and body temperature getting better and the cold feeling goes away? Or can the body still feel cold. And if a person does not eat until the afternoon for their first meal, will taking thyroid medication resolve the person feeling cold, or will they still feel cold after taking thyroid medication simply because they have not eaten yet? In other words, the coldness was a result of not eathing a meal yet? So you know, I had a pastery around 3 am... :O and it is now 11:30am. I only had water with celtic sea salt at 9am and at 11 am i had a cup of pure raw hot chocolate with stevia and a little milk. (not a packaged mix but all pure ingredients) Will the chocholate drink raise my body temperature?

Endocrinologist: Dr. David, Other replied 6 months ago

cold feeling can be caused by many causes

low thyroid hormone levels is only one of the causes

blood testing for TSH and free T4 levels can see if you are low in your thyroid hormone levels

if you are low, then taking thyroid hormone medications will help

if you have other causes of feeling cold such as poor circulation, blood vessel spasms, then taking thyroid hormone medications will not help

How do I know if I have poor circulation? Or what are the other ways to identify why I’m cold? Is the coldness a result of not eating a meal yet?
Endocrinologist: Dr. David, Other replied 6 months ago

your doctor can run testing for you, ultrasounds of your legs, angiograms.

not eating a meal can cause low blood sugar and feeling cold

after meals, blood can rush to your stomach and make you feel cold as well
