Correcting this severe hypothyroidism will be important.  Hopefully this will shrink the nodules/goiter.  Biopsy of the nodule may also be warranted.  The key to reactive hypoglycemia is typically small frequent protein based meals, avoiding concentrated sugar intake.  Some patients may benefit from chromium supplementation, please discuss these with your physician.  Close monitoring of thyroid function,  every 4-6 weeks until stable is warranted.
