What Supplements I Take for Hashimoto’s and How I Remember to Take Them

July 22, 2017

I have had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis for over 16 years and over that time I have found various vitamins and supplements that help my condition. I always remember to take my thyroid meds in the morning on an empty stomach, but I was having trouble remembering to take all of my supplements while I was at work. I searched the internet to try to find the best pill organizer that would work for me and I found this:

What is so great about this pill organizer is that it is several organizers in one. Each color can be used for a different day, but each color is a separate pillbox so I can take that day’s pills with me in my purse. Each color has 3 separate compartments, so you can divide up your pills into morning, noon, and night. I actually use up the first 2 compartments for supplements I take after lunch on a full stomach, then the evening compartment for my second thyroid dose. I used a label maker to label each pillbox a different day of the week and I really think it is useful for me to have them labeled.

The whole thing comes in a clear plastic box, so you can take 7 days worth of pills with you on a week long vacation.

I know people are going to ask me what supplements and vitamins I take for my Hashimoto’s, so here is a list:

 

Vitamin C (time released)

Beef liver (yes, beef liver in a pill)

L-Tyrosine

Vitamin D-3 & K-2 (combination pill)

Berberine

Selenium

Biotin (helps with Hashi hair loss)

Vitamin B complex (time released)

Benfotiamine

Black Cohosh (this is for my new hot flashes I’m experiencing)

Be sure to talk with your doctor before adding any of these supplements to your health care routine. They may interfere with other conditions or medications.

What supplements do you take and how do you remember to take them? Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for me as well!
