The thyroid gland, and important metabolic regulator in the body, is sensitive to levels of iodine and other compounds often found in food. Too much of these chemicals or too little, coupled with a susceptibility can lead to thyroid growths, nodules and general enlargement. This may or may not affect the body’s metabolism or functions in any way, but if the thyroid becomes large enough, it may be unsightly.
Treatment Plan for Goiter
