      Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. Mine was
      always fine until rebetron blew out my thyroid several months ago and it
      jumped to 110. But hypothyroid (underactive) causes you to be cold while
      hyperthyroid (overactive) causes heat. Go figure....all I know is that
      up until about 7 years ago I didn't mind the heat at all and now I
      really suffer from it.

      Hey, maybe it's age that does it <g> and it has nothing to do with our
      hep or livers.
