Foods To Eat When You Have Toxic Goiter
Get treated: Diet matters little or noting. You have graves disease or less likely one or more hot nodules.

Despite what you may read on the internet, diet and supplements aren't the key in managing life-threatening disease. ...Read more

Exam, lab and US: In order to know if you have a goiter (a swelling of the thyroid gland) a simple hands on exam is adequate.

To know if it is diffuse one could use history and exam pretty reliably or obtain an ultrasound definitively ...Read more

Generally yes: Hyperthyroidism refers to the thyroid over-producing thyroid hormone leading to higher-than-normal thyroid hormone levels in the blood.

I was diagnosed with non toxic goiter when I was 19, doctor prescribed me levothyroxine 50mg but I felt tightening of my throat so I stopped?
Careful SymptomsOnly: Clues, far from whole story of what is going on. Goiter (enlarged thyroid) driven by low iodine intake, increased TSH, antibodies which emulate TRH, etc. Levothyroxin only a molecule used as a treatment tool, may help some of the symptoms/issues but does not solve the cause. However, if the tool is working, stopping it may allow problems to recur & increase. Study & seek help worthy your trust. ...Read more

Can I got pregnant even though having a toxic goiter, I'm afraid that me and my husband won't have a child : (?
As long as you treat: The goiter before a pregnancy and watch thyroid levels closely during pregnancy by a good endocrinologist, they will help you get through it. It wouldn't hurt to pre plan and talk to one first to find out what you would need to look for (as far as problems go!). Good luck! I also recommend mthfr genotype testing and treatment for anyone who has had trouble getting pregnant. Treatment is lifelong. ...Read more
