pharmacist says to take thyroid on an empty stomach, and avoid calcium for 4 hours

Dec 4, 2020
I picked up desiccated thyroid from the pharmacy today, and the pharmacist said to take it once a day in the morning, 30 minutes before food and 4 hours before dairy (calcium). Looking on google, it seems to be said that calcium hinders thyroid absorption... from what I understand, Peat says to take thyroid with food to slow absorption, and doesn't saying anything about avoiding dairy (of course), Am I missing something here?
Thanks very much in advance.

Peat mentioned he doesn’t avoid milk around thyroid and the slowing of absorption makes it less stressful.

Yeah I think the slowing of absorption is a good thing, a steady dose of thyroid absorbed with food.

From my perspective, dessicated thyroid + meal is the most straightforward and effective way to take thyroid.
