Mostly bromine: Some worry about raw cruciferous veggies like broccoli ; cauliflower -- but you can avoid the problem by cooking them. The main culprit is brominated compounds, found in some soft drinks like mountain dew, gatorade, sun drop, squirt, fresca and other citrus-flavored sodas; pesticides on strawberries, etc; bakery goods ; flours containing potassium bromate http://tinyurl.Com/y9lfc3w read labels! ...Read more

Foods shoulb be avoid in multinoduler goiter?

No food restrictions: Worldwide, the common reason for goiter is a lack of iodine, known as iodine deficiency. In order to absorb as much iodine from the bloodstream as possible, the thyroid gets bigger due to an increase in thyroid cells. In america, people get enough iodine in their diet (usually through iodine added to salt), so there aren't good nor bad foods with regard to the thyroid problem. ...Read more

Please refocus: If you have a diffuse goiter, you need to find the cause. If you have graves' or are iodine deficient (does your town use iodized salt?), your health will be ruined without real, scientific treatment. If you are one of the many millions of folks who just has a big thyroid, diet's not going to affect it; if you / your dr feel it needs to be treated, scientific medicine once again can help. ...Read more

This will first make your life totally miserable and then kill you unless you accept definitive treatment (surgery, radioactive iodine) and until then the medication that will control it. Despite what you may read on the internet, diet and supplements aren't the key in managing life-threatening disease. ...Read more

Can any food supplements like amway & usana help in reducing an enlarged goiter which is not functioning at all?

No: Most "idiopathic nodular goiter" is probably caused by genetic mutations with little malignant potential. Diet won't affect it but suppressing the thyroid-pituitary system by giving supplemental thyroid may reduce the thyroid's size. ...Read more
