We often see people who are taking Thyroxin or Synthroid and have normal blood work but still experience symptoms such as fatigue. This can happen because other organs in your body might not be functioning optimally due to the removal of your thyroid. When your thyroid is in trouble, your adrenals try to compensate by going into overdrive.

If your liver is stressed, that conversion might not take place but your blood work will look normal.
