Hi, I have been on Levothyroxine 75 mcg for about 3 years now. This year I have noticed very dry and ageing skin, and always colder then i have been in the past. I have had Hypothyroid for 8 years now weight gain was very hard for me as have always weighed around 105. I'm wondering if there is something that I can do, so that i'm not always so so cold.
I was diagnosed hypo last April, and although my labs are "normal," I'm still always cold, too. The only time I can honestly say I'm comfortable is at night when I'm under the comforter and wrapped around my husband. Let me know if you get any insight...
In the meantime, I swear by Curel lotion for the dry skin.
