My girlfriend had never tested positive for thyroid disorders but, she had a large thyroid nodule (~ 9 x 3 cm) and the left side of her thyroid removed a few years ago. They discovered a micro-carcinoma in her left thyroid. She has been put on 125mg levothyroxine in order to suppress thyroid function (TSH) and hopefully prevent cancer in the remaining thyroid. What is the logic of this? Is it a flawed theory? She looked it up on line and on the ‘stop the thyroid madness’ website but can’t find anything about it.
Plus - She is currently following William Davis’s ‘Undoctored‘ programme. When she supplemented iodine she went extremely depressed and lethargic for about 2 months - so stopped taking it. Could she actually have an undiagnosed thyroid problem?.
