I have recently been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), late December 2017. I have been given carbimazole 5m to take 3 times a day. My T4 reading was 79, then 33, now 14. I had an ultrasound and it picked up a nodule on my right lobe of my thyroid. I have to have a nuclear scan this week. Has anyone taken herbs or homeopathic remedies to reduce nodule and how long does it usually take?
