I have hashi's as well - you do not have to avoid dairy unless you have a lactose allergy. But you DO have to avoid having any dairy products (or calcium supplements) within 4 hours of taking your Synthroid, as the calcium prevents your body from properly absorbing the synthroid. I am actually switching when I take my synthroid from morning to bedtime because I plan on having dairy at breakfast once I am in Phase 3.
