If you are on thyroid meds and you actually have them dialed in, would your oral temp in the a.m. be 97.3 or above?  Or, would you still expect a lower temperature?

Debi, dialed-in thyroid support should give at least 97.3 F first thing in the morning, and more likely closer to 97.8 F. You can double-check this with a late afternoon temp that should be in the neighborhood of 98.5-98.6 F.

The target temperature upon arising of 97.3 degrees F holds true whether or not you are taking thyroid hormone. 

A persistently low temp while on thyroid hormone replacement can signal inadequate dosing.

Your temp should be as close to 98.6 as possible at 3pm. If it is, you are optimal.
