I have noticed that I usually get shivers after eating otherwise normal food. Could this be related to a hypothyroid, or my blood sugar being out of whack?

As far as I know, with hypothyroidism, the hands and feet are almost always cold. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism several years ago - even through I had few of the symptoms. Mostly I was exhausted, my doctor did a bunch of blood tests and put me on Synthroid. After a number of years, I started to get a bunch of other symptoms. I checked out Stop The Thyroid Madness web site. Now I am on Armour Thyroid and do not have any of the old Synthroid symptoms. There is also a web site called Synthroid Haters.
I think Helen is right about the shivers. DO you get the same effects on low carb food? If not, or you do not know, give it a try. I expect that "normal food" is high carb.

I wonder if its the blood moving from your arms and legs to your digestive tract after eating...kind of like when a person has a fever, the blood moves from the periphery to the core...and so the person feels cold.

When your body temperature drops, you get cold. Many causes are there for getting cold after eating but that depends on what symptoms you feel. One cause might be the fever which is caused by variety of infections like cold, influenza. The other one might be the hypothyroidism in which thyroid gland doesn't produce that much thyroid hormone. It is diagnosed with simple blood test and you can easily treat with medication.

It might be because of food allergy or the water which you are drinking after every meal. Get done with food allergy test plus water test ( it could be like you need to drink light water instead of normal hard water) or food which you consume like container food or natural raw food ingredients. there might be many causes which is not predictable by us while chating and talking.

One way to know whether you are hypthyroid is to do a basal temperature test. You will need a mercury thermometer. Shake the thermometer down at night before you go to sleep and place the thermometer under your arm before leaving bed in the morning. Leave it in place for 10 minutes, then write down the result. Repeat this procedure for three days, then average the results. If you have a normally functioning thyroid you will have a basal temperature of around 98.6 F. If you average below 97.7 you probably have an underfunctioning thyroid. See a holistic MD. for confirmation.

Tony 23, to be such an expert, you do not seem to know how to spell or use punctuation marks. Please show knowledge of these two things before giving advice. Anyone with an education should not take you seriously. Have a nice day
