In brief: No

Some probiotics, taken at the same time as a thyroid pill might increase TSH by interfering with the pills absorption.

In brief: No.

No relationship between thyroid stimulating hormone and probiotics.
However, if you take thyroid hormone pills, you should make sure to take these on an ampty stomach and not with other medicines (or probiotics) as these can decrease the absorption of thyroid hormone.
