My Father is having some symptoms that I think are thyroid related. He is under the doctor anyway for unrelated matters but I suggested about the thyroid and that he should take his temperature for a week first thing in the morning. That if it is low consistently, then he should raise this with his GP about getting a blood test; he is putting weight on no matter what he tries and his legs are giving him problems.
So he finally took notice and took his temperature this morning. He tells me the reading is 35.7 but that the paperwork with the thermometer says that "normal" is anything between 35.7 to 37.3! Where do I go with this one? He's not convinced, questions everything.
