Thanks for your query.
In females it is common to get low haemoglobin (anaemia) due to monthly loss of need to take a healthy diet and as your Hb is 8.2 you will need to take iron supplement tablets.You can consult your treating physician who is treating you for thyroid and he will write you a prescription of iron tablets which you will need to take for longer period like 2-3 months.
Take care.
