My aunt has been diagnosed with thyroid gland enlarged due to lack of iodine. Doc said to wait for 6months before doing the surgery.Wht food r good?
Salt and bread: Unless you like outside the us and in one of a very few countries, it is difficult to become iodine deficient. Leafy vegetables, iodized salt, multivitamins w/iodine, and bread (as long as it's mass produced in a factory) are all sources of iodine. Thyroid hormone can also shrink the thyroid. For many (or even most) people, proper treatment should eliminate the need for surgery which has risks. ...Read more

Endometrium is tubular to elongated endometrial glands, separated by dense stroma, and focal crowding of stroma with areas of hemorrhage, nonsecretory?
Abnormal bleeding: The biopsy you described suggests that you are not having regular cycles and your doctor wanted to confirm that there was not a precancerous condition in your uterus. If you go for long periods of time without a menstrual cycle and still have a thick endometrium, it can become precancerous. You may need to take medications to regulate your cycles to prevent these changes. ...Read more

A number of generic equals are still available. However, many who have used the drug have reported harmful side effects (depression, bowel disease), and the drug is a known teratogen (can cause harm to the fetus) in pregnant women. ...Read more
Blockage results: Lymphedema occurs when there is a compromise of the lymphatic circulation. This third circulation (arteries, veins) carries things too thick to be safely carried in arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. It is propelled along by normal body movements but contains a thick material called lymph. Blockage causes it to back up causing soft tissues/skin deformity. ...Read more
I agree with: Dr. Sampson, but just wanted to clarify that while their size can be likened to a walnut, there is some variation to this and they certainly should not be indurated (hard) like a walnut ;-). ...Read more
