Body temperature is controlled by the Pituitary gland. It's a small, almond sized structure at the base of the brain that controls body temperature, blood pressure and controls the function of many other glands such as thyroid. It could just be that your Pituitary has a lower set point and that's just your normal temperature. It might be something to investigate next time you go to your doctor. Also, get a blood glucose meter and check your blood sugar level before and after eating a high carb snack. If it drops dramatically afterwards, you may very well be hypoglycemic... Low body temp and normal thyroid test may also indicate Wilson's Temperature Syndrome, where the body is making enough Thyroid hormone, but the cells are not converting it properly.

No. Armour Thyroid should never be used for weight loss and will not cause weight loss in people with NORMAL Thyroid Function.

It will not CAUSE weightloss. It will however make it possible for those with Hypothyroid to lose weight - which many could not without Armour.

Probably not in itself, but it could indicate some problems in your thyroid gland or elsewhere. Why not get it checked out by a physician. No this is not a dangerous internal temperature.

Is there any role of thyroid hormone in obesity?

Weight gain is a symptom of hypothyroid (underactive thyroid), however, if you do not have hypothyroidism you should not use thyroid hormones to speed up your metabolism. This will cause hyperthyroid and have serious side effects which could lead to death. If you suspect you are overweight because of an underactive thyroid you need to ask your doctor to have your tsh levels checked AND your free t3, free t4 checked. If you want to support your thyroid naturally you could try incorporating more iodine and selenium rich foods into your diet. These minerals are needed for your thyroid to produce the thyroid hormones.

Unkown. But why are you stopping levothyroxine during pregnancy? Unless your doctor is very familiar with thyroid conditions and has advised this course of action, this is a very bad idea.
