Taking Thyroid Medication and Dieting

One big challenge I have had is remembering to eat in the morning. Sr,. Wharton at Wharton medical clinic is big on not going to long without eating especially in the morning. You have to take thyroid medication ( I take Synthroid for under active thyroid) on an empty stomach and not eat for an hour.

I think this is one reason why I have been all over the map.

Mt routine has always been ( pre medication) to get up and while making tea eat some yogurt and then have apple or other fruit with my morning tea. I then work for a couple of hours in the morning ( I do IT consulting very part time).

While laking the thyroid medication I am thrown off and end up drinking tea and forgetting to eat.. not to mention I am STARVING.
A girl friend of mine had a suggestion which Ii am trying and it seems to work okay but not perfect. She takes her thyroid medication as soon as she wakes up- it is on her bedside table so first time she get up to use washroom or get drink of water she reaches for he thyroid meds. I have been doing this for about 2 weeks and works so-so- mainly because I get up at such weird times.

Dr. Wharton was a pharmacist before he was a medical doctor so I will ask him about this and if maybe you can eat or can only wait half an hour.
