Hi everyone, I'm not sure where to post this sorry! I'm new here and feel better for knowing that there are lovely people out there battling with thyroid issues etc., but who are kind enough to help others, thank you so much.
Please can someone advise me, I have hypothyroid for several years and on Levothyroxine 50 mg per day which has never helped much at all. Also I have Hiatus Hernia and acid reflux. I take Omeprazole for this. My daughter is concerned that the Omeprazole is blocking the uptake of Levo, (dr said to take them both in the a.m.) and therefore Levo is not being able to do what it should in my body. So, I stopped taking the Omeprazole and took the Levo on its own, but it starts the acid/burning off and it's more intense (I had been trying to deal with this by taking bicarb of soda and apple cider vinegar which helped a little but not enough to stop it). Obviously I need the Omeprazole but if it's blocking Levo? I just don't know what to do. Oh dear, I have so many questions to ask about so many issues, but if anyone has had this and can give any help or advice on what to do, it would be appreciated so much. With many thanks and kind regards to you all.
