... Hi Heath, Thanks for your interest in this. As far as I know I don't have any thyroid problems - but to be honest I don't really know what to look for.

My paternal grandmother had thyroid probs - I know... (58 replies)

... Hiya, Good to hear from you and thanks for the advice. I've found if I take it even an hour after eating it really burns so now I wait until the next meal or even leave it until next day rather than take it on an empty stomach.
