Thyroid issues with lemon water?
Hi, Few months back I got to know that I have hypothyroidism and doctor recommended me thyronorm 100mcg.
After 3 months I found the thyroid level to be normal but doctor suggested me to take the same dosage of 100mcg for coming 3 months.
But I got my TSH level checked in one and half month and found that it has decreased a lot and now it is 0.04 which means now I have hyperthyroidism. Now doctor have suggested me to take thyronorm 75 mcg.
Please advise me can I drink lemon water with such medical background?RESPONSE:
I am not a medical doctor and cannot give medical advice, especially in regards to medications.
I will say that I have in the past had an under-active thyroid (hypothyroid) and had no problem drinking lemon water.
However, I did not take any medications, so I do not know how those medications would interact with lemon water. You have to ask your doctor.
I was able to resolve my thyroid issue by supplementing with liquid iodine (potassium iodide) and also adding seaweed to my diet.
