Some foods interfere with thyroid medication absorbtion for hypothyroidism, are drumstick (moringa), Ivy gourd and Jaggery safe to consume?
Safe after an hour: As Dr. Grim said, it's best to take thyroid on an empty stomach and wait an hour before eating. I'm not aware of studies on these foods and thyroid but fiber is known to interfere with thyroid absorption and the foods you mention all have fiber. But any food should be fine after an hour. Taking Vit C with thyroid improves absorption. See http://ubplj. Org/index. Php/wlmj/article/viewFile/130/149 Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Immediately Whenever: All vitamins are single molecules so plentiful in most foods that humans have not retained all genes/proteins to manufacture out of other molecules, typically missing just 1 step. Food is a complex mix of billions of molecules & body's digestive process deals with the absorption complexities. Yet some people promote fear of ingesting some molecules not in optimal order; rarely a significant issue. Read more
Is it better to drink tea/coffee right after a meal or couple of hours later? Can drinking tea/coffee immediately after food restrict iron absorption?
You may: If thyroid blood test is the only test you are having, coffee is not likely to materially affect the results. Generally it is better to be fasting for lab tests. Read more
Try Not: Fasting for thyroid tests not usually needed so perhaps you are also having lipids, cortisol or blood glucose as well. Best if only water for the 12 hours prior to fasting tests. Some evidence that perhaps caffeine can impact blood sugar very slightly (though may be insignificant). Some sources of coffee (eg via percolator) have oils that raise triglyceride levels. Wait for that cup if you can. Read more
