I have hypothyroidism and take thyroxine , is it ok for me to eat cruciferous vegetables and soya products?

I have hypothyroidism  and take thyroxine , is it ok for me to eat  cruciferous vegetables  and soya products?

Yes, however...: Eating large amounts of cruciferous vegetables & soy can suppress thyroid function, but it is not clear how much and moderate consumption, esp.

Math does not add up: From your question, the math does not add up if you are taking 50 microgrm of thyroxin and your thyroid function like tsh, t3, (liothyronine) T4 are normal and you are on 1200 calories daily diet and you exercise intensely 3 times a week and still do not loose weight. I will recommend you see your doctor and/or nutritionist as to what you are doing is right or wrong. ...Read more

Each morning before I take my synthroid I feel very bad and about 1 hr after taking it feel good. Why is that? Does it wear off by the morning?

Each morning before I take my synthroid I feel very bad and about 1 hr after taking it feel good. Why is that? Does it wear off by the morning?

Possibly,..: Everyone metabolizes medications differently, and in your case, your symptoms are what they are, so it is possible the meds are waxing in the AM. Try talking to your Dr. and maybe taking the meds at Noon or even in the PM hours may help decrease the feeling you get in the AM. Best wishes. ...Read more
