    I am on T3 and I am suppose to avoid calcium and iron for 2 hrs. after taking it. and I noticed that it is part of my whey protein. Did anyone else loss the effectiveness of their t3 med when taking the shake?

    I use rice protein in my shake for the same reason. I haven't been doing the shake all that long but I think's OK.
    All these restrictions are really frustrating aren't they? I think we just have to do the best we can.

    I think you need to wait one hour after T3 before eating anything and 2 hours before eating anything with calcium in it. In one of the posts Stormyskye said she thought that rice protein would be OK.
    As I said, I think we have to do our best to stick to the guidelines but we can't always be perfect.

    Yes I get it from the FFC too. I was told to wait 1 hr. to eat anything and 2 hrs. for the calcium.
