If it were me, I would follow as many of Ray Peat's recommendations as I could. Anything I could do to get my metabolism up I would do, including supplementing thyroid.

Ray Peat said:
Broda Barnes, more than 60 years ago, summed up the major effects of hypothyroidism on health very neatly when he pointed out that if hypothyroid people don't die young from infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis, they die a little later from cancer or heart disease.

Do you have access to your friend or is he quarantined?
Ray Peat advises iodides.
And Charlie is right: thyroid (t4 and t3 combined) is important.
