Default Thyroid?

Has Ideal Protein had positive OR negative effects regarding your Thyroid. I have Hypo-Thyroid and a nodule, not sure if I should be that concerned about the soy content.

Has your dosage changed much since you started IP?

Hmm...never thought about this affecting my thyroid. I haven't had it checked since I started, but I'm wondering now if I need to. I've been on for 7 weeks, and have lost 36 pounds. lately I have been very tired, and my weight is like a yo-yo. Does the soy reduce the effectiveness of the pills or something?? I am hypo.

Not sure the specifics but soy contains plant estrogen which promotes growth of cells. I know women that have a history of breast cancer are told not to have soy because it may promote the growth of bad cells. Maybe someone else has more specific information.

I had a TSH test eight weeks in that showed an over correction from my daily dose of synthroid after a 40 lb lose. My doctor told me to skip one dose week and I will test again soon before lowering my daily dose down from 1.25. I was told this is something that should be monitored

I am not a fan of soy at all because of the phytoestrogens and possibly higher risk of cancer, but am looking at this as shorter-term thing....I assume that 6 months of soy can't be any worse for my body and thyroid than the negative impacts of being insulin resistant and overweight.

But I will be getting some new lab tests done in April to see where I am and if my thyroid meds need to be adjusted. And as soon as I can phase down and limit the soy, I will definitely be doing so.

Are any of you taking Synthroid for your hypo-thyroid? My TSH got totally whacked out, and I just learned that I shouldn't take calcium, iron, and a few other minerals within a 4 hour window of taking the Synthroid. So, if I take it at 5, that means I can't take my MV until 9/10. Can hold off on all of the supplements till lunch, or is it vital that the supplements are taking at breakfast?

Thanks for any help.

I take my Armour thyroid med 2 am or so when I get up to go to the bathroom (all that water!). Frees me up to eat first thing in the am.

Chloe222,

That sounds like a good plan. I usually don't get up in the middle of the night, but perhaps I can force the issue by drinking a great big glass of water before going to bed. :>)

If I don't wake up in the middle of the night, do you think it would mess the diet up if I move the morning supplements to 10ish? Or do they need to be taken with food?

Yes, soy along with Calcium and Iron effect the absorbtion of synthroid meds.

The first time I was on IP and was at my heaviest, I was careful and wanted to make super sure that my synthroid was going to be absorbed so I moved my thyroid medication to the pm, just before bed since that would be the time farthest away from any soy/vitamin product I had taken thoughout the day.

I lost about 30 lbs on IP and my TSH did drop a little but not much. I was happy that he kept me at my same dosage

Now that I am near goal, I take my synthroid alone in the am then vits at noon with lunch, and calcium etc with dinner and more calcium before bed. I have no problem with this. I get my levels monitored often because I had thyroid cancer and they are always about the same with this routine.

I'm hypothyroid, been on replacement for about 15 years now and my dosage varies with my health. I've experimented with when to take my thyroid: first thing in am, with my vitamins at breakfast and after dinner.

Hands down, it works best first in the morning with a glass of water. A few hours later, I have breakfast and my vitamins. and then I take my cal-mag after dinner. I take a smaller dose in the am, then when I took it at other times of the day and I seem to function on a more even keel - less fatigue and other symptoms.

A benefit of taking your cal-mag at night is it helps with digestion, sleep, and promotes a bowel movement in the morning.

As for soy - it seems to be a personal preference. I avoid soy as much as possible as it increases hot flashes and night sweats for me.

I take armour thyroid in the morning about an hour or so before I eat breakfast. I am due for my 3 month blood work in about 2-3 weeks. So I guess we will see if it has effected it. I honestly didnt even think about the soy effecting it. My coach didnt say anything about that.
