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.

Hi doc what is the best food for goiter?? And what medication should I take? Thanks

Goiter: I don't know of anything that suggests food has an effect on a goiter. That said, is your thyroid enlarged or troubling you? Does the goiter interfere with your eating? Trouble swallowing?

I have toxic goiter what food should I eat and avoid?

Get treated: Diet matters little or noting. You have graves disease or less likely one or more hot nodules. 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

What are the foods good for diffuse goiter? And what are the food to to avoid?

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

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
