After numerous visits to GP about my increase g neck size and tiredness I eventually got an ultra sound and confirmation of my goiter. I was told initially after blood test my function was normal and the lumpy swallowing sensation just stress. I'm now told I must have a thyroidectomy due to the distortion of my windpipe. No one told me that toxicity is the cause and that there may be alternative approaches. Does anyone have any ideas about diet approaches detoxing etc and if they can shrink the goiter?
