What was your average temp prior to this? I know for a fact that I am usually around ~97 as a regular body temperature, which is quite a bit lower than the average of 98.7.

I'm curious about the liver function, hypothyroid connection. I know I'm hypothyroid, I was diagnosed about 6 years ago and put on Synthroid. I would not doubt I have a fatty, ineffecient liver. I am trying to clean my diet up dramatically right now, what else can I do to help with Liver function, and after this much time what is the likelihood my thyroid function could "come back on line"?

First thing I test for with low body temps, particularly in the extremities, is iodine deficiency. See Optimox.com for more information. The test is a simple 24-hour urine test.

I've had multiple patients whose cold hands and feet have gone away after completing the testing and then the loading phase of iodine supplementation.

No, a normal Western or even Paleo diet will not get one enough iodine, especially when coming from a deficiency.
