  1. Coffee. The caffeine or coffee itself isn’t a problem, but many people drink coffee with cream or milk. The calcium in dairy products can interfere with thyroid hormone absorption. Wait an hour after taking your thyroid medication to have your cappuccino or latte. People with hypothyroidism should eat a diet based around vegetables, fruits, and lean meats. They are low in calories and very filling, which may help prevent weight gain.

    With that said, hypothyroidism does not influence the effects of coffee and caffeine. Studies have shown, however, that the symptoms of hypothyroidism are temporarily improved by stimulants, of which caffeine is the most commonly ingested. (There may be a rebound effect, although I have not experienced it myself.)
    The effects of coffee (caffeine) are dependent on your genetics. SNPedia has the scoop, with links to various studies.

  3. Coffee makes me feel good.
    Be careful, drug abuse can make the situation worse and affect your health seriously. I’ve been suffering from hypothyroidism for a while now. At first, I assumed it was simply a lack of exercise. It wasn’t until I noticed I couldn’t stand the cold of the air conditioners that I became worried. I sought medical advice and they told me I had to take meds from now on. Learning that made me feel like I was going to suffer forever, until I found about this method . It’s been a week since I’ve been using this strategy and I’ve been feeling energetic for the most part. Moving around doesn’t hurt as much and my skin is healthier. I was worried for nothing . I’m grateful that I won’t have to take medication for the rest of my life. This method will save your life.

  4. One of the things that many people don’t know is that coffee can impair the absorption of thyroid medications and therefore needs to be spaced out from thyroid medications. This is because coffee lowers the intestinal absorption of both inorganic and organic compounds, and seems to physically interact with thyroid medications. There is one specially formulated thyroid medication that may withstand the effects of coffee ‒ Tirosint, which is a gelcap formulation of levothyroxine, showed adequate absorption, even when taken with coffee.
    Food, in general, can impair the absorption of thyroid hormones, so this is why it’s always recommended to take thyroid hormones on an empty stomach, with a glass of water.
    The caffeine in coffee has an effect on our heart rate, metabolism, wakefulness, adrenal health, and urine concentration. If you have an overactive thyroid, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, frequent urination or palpitations, you may benefit from cutting back or even eliminating caffeine.
