Hi Mary:

I understand that eating soy could affect the function of my thyroid medicine. However I am in change of life and have to use a soy creme to
try and keep the hot flashes away…does this also affect my thyroid meds?

(I would think it would?)
The hot flashes have been horrible 30-40 per night so bad I could not sleep at all and the creme is starting to help I am not wanting to stop using it. It is Emerita-over the counter. The patch my Dr. gave me fell off and was very expensive so I gave up on that and found this creme..But I also have CFS and Fibro so what to do?
