Hmmm... There might be a connection.

Monday, November 21, 2011

So, I'm taking Synthroid. At 6:30am every day... sort of. Sometimes, I sleep through my alarm and miss it; sometimes, I'm running around so busy in the morning I don't make it. I also miss being able to sleep in.

I'm having a problem with "eating in front of the TV", too. Not a lot... unless I start. Then it's nom-nom-nom all over the place.

So... if I COULDN'T eat in the evening in front of the TV because my tummy needed to be empty to take my medicine?

Hmmm... there may be something here. Something like "have last meal/snack before leaving work in the evening, and then JUST DON'T EAT. (The 6-8 small meals thing is wonderful, but DOES NOT WORK with my job.) So... hmm.

There may be a way to kill two birds with one stone here, because I'm ALWAYS awake in the evenings until 10pm!!

    Sounds like it might be a workable plan. Good luck!

    The hope is that not only will I take my meds closer to the same time every day, I *also* won't be having caffeine once I leave work, or food late in the day - two things that *really* mess me up. Also, I'll be able to check off "didn't eat in front of the TV" consistently - since that's the only place to eat dinner in my house right now.

(I'll be REALLY glad when they've finished installing the new doors next week and I can have a dinner table again!!)

    I hope that works for you. Taking it at the same time is helpful because it manages energy. I take armour thyroid, and my first dose is at 6:30. That's the only time I know I have my stomach clear. From what I understand, it's more important to have the stomach clear with synthroid (the absorption is still better for armour too but I take it at the same time 3x/day even if meal times change).

Find a way to get it consistent and you'll notice a difference.
