Patient History Log

A patient history log can be helpful to your doctor in determining if you have conditions such as certain gastrointestinal (GI) diseases or if you use certain drugs that can affect thyroid medicine. Your log should include a record of your currently treated medical conditions as well as the prescription and nonprescription (OTC) medications that you take and the times that you take them.7

Food diary

In a recent survey of over 31,000 patients, only 33.4% reported telling a conventional healthcare provider about their diet and nutritional supplement use.14 Foods with ingredients such as soy and fiber can affect the performance of your thyroid medicine. Nutritional supplements such as iron (for treating anemia) or calcium (for preventing bone loss) are also known to affect levothyroxine. A food diary can be effective in helping you and your doctor determine whether any of the food, supplements, or vitamins that you regularly consume can affect your thyroid medication.7
