Consider the hypothetical expression,
I fell sick, because I was slacking on my thyroid's pill consumption.
"Consumption" as a noun feels very awkward to me, can somebody suggest an alternative idiomatic expression?

"Slacking on taking my thyroid pill" would be a less formal alternative.
"my thyroid's pill consumption" doesn't really sound right, because it sounds like the pills belong to your thyroid, or that your thyroid is taking the pills by itself. If you want to use a construction like this, it would work better as "my thyroid pill consumption", using thyroid as a modifier for pill and thyroid pill as a modifier for consumption.
