This is Dr. David

taking aloe vera gel will not inhibit your thyroxine thyroid hormone absorption.

but thyroxine is best taken on an empty stomach to maximize absorption.

you should still continue to get your thyroid hormone levels checked regularly

and make sure your TSH levels are between 0.3 and 3.0

exercise and cutting your calories is the basis of being able to loose weight

let me know if you have questions.
