    Your thyroid regulates the bodies chicks with thyroid problems can either be fat or skinny.

    My GF is skinny but I never thought about it as alarming, apparently the doc said she may have too high a metabolism. She is like 5 ft 100 lbs maybe a bit less. But she carries zero % BF. I just got her into working out and she has been training hard and eating right so I just think she is burning alot now. But I want to be prepared for what the doc will say cause I don't want her taking any meds. And she has always been around 100 lb isssssssssh

    This will slow down her thyroid? How did you come up with that?

    although thyroid effects your metabolism, it also regulates heat and cold, and if she has an overactive thyroid she shoud feel more warm then the average because all that energy from fast metabolism has to be given up as heat, but if she has an active thyroid it is alot better then having a slow thryoid. also a being tired is not a symptom of over active thyroid but underactive thyroid.

    so your saying that if she had a over active thyroid then she wouldn't be tired? And she is actually cold all the time as well, well at least she always complains she is cold

    My girl got her blood work back and the only thing the doctor said was that her white blood cells were low, I think there are suppose to be a .9 and they are a .7 or something like that..
