I take Thyroxine and read here recently that taking it with food or fatty drinks is not a good idea.
I also take alpha lipoic acid, and have been taking that late and the Thyroxine early as they are thought to be antagonistic - yesterday I took them the other way round, and have dropped over a pound in weight overnight. That is a more normal reaction for me on 60 gm of carbs a day, so I am going to continue to take the Thyroxine late. Before diabetes I could lose 2Kg a week on 80 gm of carbs a day, if I was exercising.
I do now feel that I am sitting on my bones - something I will have to get used to I think, or start to make cushions for all the hard chairs I use. I am knitting in pink for the latest grandchild, as she is the fourth child and the first girl but I think I will have to stop hand knitting and do it on the machine. Time just flies by these days.
