    From a couple old discussions here, and from Dr Ray Peat's writings, I can see how Fish oils are bad for your Thyroid. Since I stopped taking them, my T4 dose has been much more effective.

    But, EPA/DHA still have their benefits.

    Could I use Flax Seed instead ? Or anything else ?

    Thanks !

    I don't know who Ray Peat is but I've never seen anything to indicate that fish oil was detrimental to thyroid function.



    For reasons unrelated to thyroid, I think men should steer clear of flax.

    Run a search here for Flax in the thread title, there have been a few discussions over the years.
