Either shouldn't be a problem, just take any supplements separate from you thyroid medication. Calcium should be taken at least 4 hours apart from thyroid meds. I take essential fatty acids (fish oil) every day.
Any seafood product contains iodine. When on a low-iodine diet fish (and anything ocean-based) is a no-no. Check with your endo but, if you are concerned and have a choice, flax seed oil would be the safer bet.
I could SWEAR Barlean's flax seed oil helped me a LOT--back about eighteen months ago when I was experimenting with the natural stuff and going to the Amish doctor. (I tried everything, was desperate for help since I had a deadbeat endo who only knew how to prescribe Tapazole and change the dose and look at the T numbers while ignoring the rest of the Graves' disease.
I'm no expert--and there are folks on here who know TONS more than me--but my understanding is that good flax, like Barlean's, is just plain good for you in general--for lots of things. It's just one of those things some of us aren't going to afford on top of all the d___ doctor bills and meds.
I take Evening Prim Rose, 1500MG, Bioten 1000MG, Centrum Silver for the calcium ( I am 30 it is for older people) as well as 2000mg of flaxseed all at night before bed!!! My Doc approved this. I have had real bad ahir loss and I needed to make sure I am doing all I can to not lose it all. I have lost half my hair plus I cut 12+ inches off. It *****. I was Diagnosed Papillary Carinoma with lymph node spread. Partial Thyroidectomy on may the 5th to be exact them a TT the 27th of may. What a trip. I take 200 MCG of SYNTHROID the Generic at 200MCG My TSH stayed at 14. I am now .42 I beleive. Just had my three month TG and TSh and I am CLEAN SO FAR!!! I had 150 Millicuries of RAI on July. To KILL the rest of the cancer.
I have very dry skin, which has been worse since I've been having thyroid problems - I had been taking flaxseed oil, but the doctor suggested that I try fish oil instead (3000 mg/ day), as it's more easily absorbed. It made a real difference - for the better :-) You should probably ask your doctor, but if they have no objections, it could be quite helpful.
