Lara Pizzorno is the author of “Your Bones: How You Can Prevent Osteoporosis and Have Strong Bones for Life – Naturally” and a member of the American Medical Writers Association with 29 years of experience specializing in bone health.

Recently we asked Lara if she would help us provide a series of short, ongoing videos to help you (our customers and readers) stay up to date on the latest facts and science related to bone health.

In this latest video, Lara discusses whether or not you can take a thyroid medication and strontium supplement at the same time (of day). Watch the video below (or read the transcript provided) and let us know what you think in the comments. 🙂

How far apart in hours should you take thyroid meds and calcium.?

Hi Georgia!

If you’re taking AlgaeCal, we recommend a 4+ hour separation from thyroid medications.

In saying that, do check in with your doctor before starting new supplements and feel free to call our Bone Health Consultants at 1-800-820-0184 for more information. 🙂

I don’t take Thyroid meds but have Thyroid Nodules. Can Strontium Citrate affect this condition negatively?

Hi Grace,

While Strontium Citrate is not likely to affect this condition, it is best to discuss with your doctor.
