RAI Question

Doing research for my wife as I am tired of doctors not being able to help her..... My question is......

If my wife had RAI and her RAI uptake shows that she has no thyroid and her levels are showing normal then why is she feeling so bad? She is exploring getting tested for Hashimoto's disease and other Autoimmune disease, but if her Thyroid is inactive then will these tests work. Can someone please help me understand this better?

Within the last year I\she has gotten off birth control pills, gotten off prozac, exercises 3-4 times a week and eats a very healthy diet yet she is as tired as ever and cannot lose a single pound.

There is tons of info out there but most of it talks about people that still have an active thyroid.

Confused - please help.
