... Levels are checked annually and ok (always in range).
I always take my dose in the morning with a large glass of water as soon as I wake up. For breakfast, I make myself a healthy smoothie consisting of almond milk, some greens (kale or spinach leaves), a bit of protein powder (usually shakeology), oats, wheat germs, some mixed berries, some mixed nuts.
I had previously read "be careful with calcium" so I switched from cow's milk to almond. I don't mind soy either but that has some implications?
The protein mix does no have multivitamins but it does have lots of "super foods" (which may end up as the same result).
I recently read that kale is a problem if combined with levothyroxine. I feel like I am running out of options.
I try to take the medication as early as possibly to be more than 30 min away from breakfast. So e.g. if I wake up at 4 am, I will take it with a glass of water and sleep for another 3 hours. Does that work? Or is it better to have the food closer together with medication? I am really confused and would like to find a way to take the levothyroxine in an effective manner while not having to give up my other healthy foods. What should I do?
