Hi Everyone, I have Hashimotos and am following the advice of many re vitamins, I was wondering If there is a time to take various ones; I take the following:-

Morning with breakfast

B12,B Complex (liquid under tongue), biotin, K2, zinc

Evening before food:-

S Boulardii, L-Glutamin

with food:-

Selenium, D3, K2, B complex (liquid under tongue),and B12

Just about to start with Magnesium, where does that fit in.

Thanks for your help

You take vit K2, B12 and B complex twice a day? Why?

When do you take your levo? Vit D and magnesium should be taken at least four hours away from levo, and the rest at least two hours away - except the sublingual ones, they don't matter.

Most people take their magnesium in the evening because it makes them sleepy. But, if you take your levo in the evening, you can't do that. So, it all depends on when you take your levo. :)

Good Morning Greygoose,

My K2 is a spray that recommends 3 times a day ( I do 2). B12 is because my levels were low so I wanted to boost them. B Complex is a droplet form recommending 12 under the tongue and 12 in one go is too much to bear so I space it out. V D3 take at night and will take Magnesium then too as recommended by you. I take levo as early as possible in the morning.

Are you taking your Levo at least an hour before breakfast?

Have you considered taking your Vitamin D with lunch?

Hi Mary,

Yes I take Levo far away from anything else. If I am late, I take my morning vits to work and take them later. I could take my D a lunchtime, maybe I will do that.

Is B12 also a spray or a sublingual nugget?

Vit D3 should be taken with the fattiest meal of the day for good absorption.

Well, you could take that all in one go, then. :)

Thanks Greygoose, I seem to making meal out of everything at the moment. It is such a massive change to a previous very healthy and fit lifestyle, it consumes me. I think if I could just feel well I could get on with my life and just pop the pill.

I had such a hard weekend with all this so I have now decided to try the AIP diet, do you have any guidelines?

I know nothing about the AIP diet, I'm afraid.

You'll get used to it all. You shouldn't try to change everything at once. Ease into it slowly. And, after a while, it will just become like second nature to you. :)
