What supplements are safe for someone with no thyroid?

Published: July 23, 2013

Which one of your books would give me advice on what supplements are safe for someone with no thyroid gland and has to be on synthroid everyday?


No supplements come to mind that would pose a problem , except that iron and calcium (and perhaps a few other minerals) can block the absorption of thyroid hormone and are best taken 2-6 hours away from the thyroid.
