Is it possible to shrink an 80 gram goiter with the autoimmune protocol diet if Synthroid (thyroxine) has not shrunk it?

In brief: Not really

See your physician and ask him or her to have you see an endocrinologist.

In brief: No

If accurate, that is a big goiter.
I am not familiar with that diet, but I am guessing it contains iodine. The american diet is already loaded with iodine. I am very very skeptical that any diet will help your goiter. If it is bothering you (restricting breathing, swallowing) surgery may be indicated. See your endocrinologist.
