Herbal supplements: There is no literature suggesting that you can not take the gardenia cambodia with synthroid. However, some contra-indicated medications are diabetes medications, iron, potassium, calcium, serotonin, singulair, (montelukast) statins and warfarin.

I take 75 Synthroid (thyroxine) after a thyroidectomy. Would an iodine supplement help? How would I know if I were iodine deficient?
Iodine not needed: The primary organ that uses iodine is the thyroid. If your thyroid is removed, then an iodine supplement will not be of use. In addition, there is a lot of iodine in a normal diet. It is very hard to become iodine deficient in all but a handful of remote regions of the world. ...Read more

Your TSH is also not too high as some ranges have up to 5.0 as upper normal, but it's better if toward 1.0 but if no symptoms, leave alone or see dr. ...Read more
If depressed. . .: Depression and hypothyroidism do often run together, but thyroxin alone may not eliminate your depression. For my depressed patients I often suggest a high epa fish oil such as omega-brite, so that they can have at least 1-2 grams epa/day in only 3 capsules. Take this with full meals. Also, consider a multivit that contains 1000mcg l-methylfolate & 1000mcg B12 (methylcobalamin) daily as well. ...Read more

Otherwise, the thyroid levels that are absorbed into the body may vary each day. ...Read more

The road to health..: ...does NOT lead through your rectum. Colon cleansing can cause vomiting, electrolyte imbalance, dehydration, jaundice & kidney failure. It was discredited a century ago. It may sound appealing but there is NO scientific evidence for it. None. Claims that toxins in your GI tract cause health problems eg arthritis, allergies, asthma are nonsense. Arm yourself with knowledge, not outdated claptrap. ...Read more

I'm taking synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroidism and also taking a liquid iodine supplement. Is this ok? What is more effective? Will my thyroid get better?
Get Iodine Level: There are still areas in Brazil with iodine deficiency. If you are iodine deficient and have an enlarging thyroid (goiter) and an underactive thyroid the iodine will likely be helpful and your Synthroid (thyroxine) dose may go down (do not take them at the same time). If you are not iodine deficient depending on the thyroid problem, iodine may actually worsen thyroid function. Get your iodine level checked. ...Read more

Will taking pumpkin seed oil supplements 1000mg for hair loss, negatively effect my thyroid functioning? I have hypothyroidism taking 75mcg synthyroid
Not studied: Hi. No one has studied the effect of pumpkin seed oil (PSO) on thyroid function; just like no one has studied its effect on hair loss! So take PSO to your heart's content; you're enriching some snake oil salesperson, but I seriously doubt it will have any effect on your thyroid function tests or l-thyroxine dose. Good luck! ...Read more
