Caution: Thyroxine users
Recent research suggests that calcium supplementation may cause the medicine thyroxine (widely prescribed to treat an underactive thyroid) to be less effective and may slow the absorption of thyroxine into the bloodstream and thus lower effectiveness. Taking calcium and thyroxine 6 to 12 hours apart may prevent interference. In every event, we would advise all individuals to inform their doctor of all supplements they are taking in conjunction with thyroxine.
Individuals who have had part of their thyroid removed, along with one or more parathyroid glands, will need to monitor calcium levels (your GP will be able to arrange this).
