Hi I was diagnosed with overactive thyroid back in Dec 2010 with a result of 73. I tried PTU but even this would not bring my levels down. In the end after 2 years me and my consultant decided I would have radioactive therapy to remove the thyroid gland. I started on 75mg Levothyroxine. I have a healthy diet and go to the gym so I dont really put weight on. I do sometimes get moody and angry and this is not me as a person so get upset about this. Anyway I would like to know if there is any particular time I should take my meds. At present I take them in a morning around 7.30 with cod liver oil. Then 20 minutes later I have a fruit smoothie. Iv heard about nutrient absorbsion etc,am I doing this all wrong? I look forward to your reply
