Decrease your Absorption of Thyroid Medications:
*coffee (decreases absorption by about 1/3)
**antacids containing aluminum hydroxide
***ferrous sulfate (you know, iron supplements)
****calcium carbonate (calcium supplements and high calcium foods)
*****soy protein shakes
(what about everything ELSE that has soy protein isolate in it?)
******Raloxifene/evista (pharmaceutical for osteoporosis)
*******chromium picolinate (supplement often given to diabetics)
The full scoop including abstracts for the studies can be found at:
http://www.denvernaturopathic.com/thyroidinterference.htm. There you will also find the abstract of a study that demonstrates that taking your thyroid medication at bedtime may be more effective than taking it first thing in the morning.
Furthermore, I confess that I learn more great new stuff from Jacob Schor's email newsletter than from most of my professors. You too can get on his email list at: http://www.denvernaturopathic.com/ .
