I have just started taking Synthroid. I have read a lot of helpful information regarding foods to avoid and when it is okay to eat them but even so, I am a little unclear on a couple of things. First of all, I usually have a smoothie with almond milk in the morning. The almond milk has added calcium so is this not advised within 4 hours of taking the Synthroid? I have already pushed back the time that I take my calcium supplement. Next, actual almonds - I usually eat 8-10 in the morning. They are not on the avoidance list from Synthroid but they are high in protein so that has me wondering. Finally, I usually have a bowl of oatmeal mid-morning. Is this something to have at least 4 hours after taking the medication?
