There is a very accurate way for you to check your basal metabolic rate and thyroid function  at home and all that you need is an oral thermometer.  This
simple method was developed by Dr. Broda Barnes.

How to Take the Test

1.  Place the oral thermometer on your nightstand prior to going to bed.

2.  Immediately upon waking the next morning, place the thermometer in your armpit for 10 minutes. Do NOT get out of bed. Relax and remain still during the test.

3.  Record the temperature.

Men, premenstrual and perimenopausal women can take their temperatures on any day of the month. Women in their menstrual years get the most accurate reading on the second or third day after menstrual flow starts.

Interpreting Your Results

Normal: 97.2–98.2 degrees

Below 97.2 degrees usually indicates a sluggish or hypothyroid condition

Above 98.2 degrees usually indicates an overactive or hyperthyroid condition

If you are out of the normal range, share your results with your physician.
