B Complex helps with the absorption of B12, and fish oil and cod liver oil complement each other.

Levothyroxine did not work for me Talkin peace and I gave it a ten year effert! I'm now on T3 Liothyronine, but my blood tests showed several deficiencies. Apparently the majority of underactive thyroid patients are lacking in iron and Vitamin D. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of thyroid medication, anything acidic does.

I've decided on a skeleton form of my usual protocols, it's only two days a week, so I've halved what I usually take.

Fish oil, not gush oil....

Why would you skip them- have you accounted for any calories in them?

Does the b complex and the b 12 cover 2 different things? Why gush oil AND cod liver oil?

All of those things should be in a healthy diet.
Supplements are generally an utter con.
The thyroid is dealt with by taking thyroxin, not vitamin C

if you are fasting, fast - but take all normal prescribed medicine.

Save up the money you spend on pills and send it on fish and veg for non fast days. Job done.

On a regular day I take B12, B complex, cod liver oil, fish oil, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin C, and an iron sachet.

I'm hypothyroid and eventually found out I was deficient in a lot of things.

Should I skip them all on my two fast days?
