How long can it take thyroid hormone to go through the stomach?

Absorption time

Inflammation_of_the_thyroid
Absorption time of levothyroxine from the gut is reportedly within 20-30 minutes of ingestion (mainly absorbed via the small intestine). Of course, there are many variables that can affect such timing including the gut transit time, acidity of the stomach and type of food/liquid co-ingested or present in the GI tract during time of ingestion

First thing in AM

Thyroid hormone needs to be taken away from other medications or supplements, at least 30 minutes before breakfast. Biphosphonates, once a week or once a month has to be taken in the morning. Avoid eating, or lying down for 30 minutes after. Drink a full glass of plain water along with the pill.

Thyroid

It depends who "they" are. Most primary care doctors only check thyroid function - T4,freeT4, TSH. Endocrinologists would also likely check antibodies against thyroid -- TPO, thyroglobulin antibody, TSH receptor antibody or TSI.
