hi

flaxseed will help with inflammation for the body. I would try and boost the body. If you have been under alot of stress this also needs to be addressed as this can throw the thyroid out of balance. Foodstate has a Thyroid support formula for thyroid, can be used with Eltroxin but better under the guidance of a practitioner particularly when you need to go for follow up blood tests.
