Hi!

Maybe someone here can put my mind at ease. I am in my 20s and was diagnosed with hashimotos hypothyroidism at 11 due to having a significant goiter and very off levels in my blood work. Since then I've had a decent time with it until recently. So at my yearly I mentioned some issues with some pain and pressure in my throat and my Dr did an ultrasound that day and found that I have 4 nodules that will need to be biopsied next week.

With my family history I am very nervous because thyroid cancer does run in my family. I was told that my bloodwork looked ok but I noticed one of my numbers is out of range. Should I be more concerned?

    Hi Taylor, no point in being concerned about something that might not be.

    Instead, spend your time and energy researching dietary changes you can make to help your thyroid, as well as supplements. Avoid foods known to be goitrogens, etc. There are so many things out there and so much more information available in the last ten years. You don't have to be destined for the same future you've seen some of your family members go through.

    Please try this diet my fiancee had this sort of trouble and I put her on a diet of all the height protien foods and told her not to eat the following foods-

    cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and turnip!

    the reason you don't eat these foods is because your immune system is attacking your thyroid thinging it's an invader in your body so you have to lower the foods that feed the immune system to be able to put this problem right! The way I see it you have nothing to lose by trying this diet?

    my fiancee was on this diet for 4-5 weeks waiting for her next appointment, the bloods at this appointment were normal, the doctor was surprised at the results!

    This deit works for 85% of ppl best of luck Taylor

      Hi James, thanks for posting. I was able to get the thyroid problems into remission for a time period. I believe it was due to a diet high in clean meat protein and vegetables, along with cleansing and weight loss.

      Cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli are all part of the cruciferous family and are known goitrogens. So thyroid patients should avoid these. Strawberries are another goitrogen.
