Also, happened upon this little piece of info:
"Fish Oil Affects Cortisol, Fat Mass
GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Consumption of fish oil supplements can positively affect lean body and reduced serum cortisol levels, according to a new study (J Intl Soc Sports Nutr. ePub 8 Oct 2010. DOI: 10.1186/1550-2783-7-31). Researchers from Gettysburg College recruited 44 healthy adults to examine the effects of supplemental fish oil (FO) on resting metabolic rate (RMR), body composition and cortisol production. Subjects were randomized to receive either 4 g/d of safflower oil (SO) or 4 g/d of FO providing 1,600 mg/d eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 800 mg/d docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for six weeks.
At the end of the intervention, researchers found subjects taking FO had a significant increase in fat-free mass compared to the SO group; they also had a significant reduction in fat mass and a tendency for a decrease in body fat percentage. In addition, there was a tendency for salivary cortisol to decrease in the FO group, and a significant correlation in the FO group between the changes in cortisol and change in fat-free mass and fat mass. There were no significant differences between the groups in terms of body mass, RMR or respiratory exchange ratio."

If your cortisol is too low, your thyroid is still producing a normal amount of t3, but without the cortisol it does not work. It's pretty much a guarantee that if your cortisol levels are low, you are also hypothyroid. If your cortisol is too low, and you start taking something to boost your thyroid, be it prescription or otherwise, you won't notice a thing from it. You need to address the low cortisol in your body before you can address any thyroid problems you may or may not have.
And I have nothing to back this up, this is just me theorizing how things should work with that knowledge. But it would seem that you are limiting any thyroid boosting supps effectiveness by trying to reduce the cortisol in your body as much as you can, since the thyroid cannot function without cortisol.
allthingsmale.com has a TON of great articles on how cortisol and the thyroid interact with one another
