Original email for context: I just switched to NP (nature thyroid) and my last round I kept taking the medication (synthetic). I had never thought it could interfere with weight loss. What do you recommend?
Yes I did continue my thyroid meds while on P2. I know Dr. Simeons mentioned discontinuing such in his manuscript, but from what I’ve seen this doesn’t seem to be a good idea and everyone I know continues it while on P2, and I think get better results as well by having their thyroid function better while on the diet.
The only thing I might mention is that sometimes when you lose weight, you may have improved health in other ways, and I personally ended up needing to lower my dosage of thyroid medication after the diet, but I’m not sure how often this would be the case for others.
