I have a multinodular goitre with one very large nodule compressing my trachea and causing occasional swallowing problems. The endocrinologist told me all my thyroid levels were perfectly normal and the cause of the lump was pure bad luck! The options given to me were to observe it, have RAI to destroy it or surgery to completely remove the gland. And the last two option would make me hypo and require a lifetime of medication. I was wondering if there is anything I can do myself to shrink the nodule. Has anyone tried? Should I give up gluten and dairy? Try exercising more or maybe reflexology? I really don't want I be hypo forever if I can avoid it.
