L-Thyrosine, Vitamin D3 and probiotics for thyroid nodules
Last year my ulrtasound showed that I have 3 nodules on my right lobe one small nodule on left. I had two biopsies done at different times showing negative for malignancy (chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis(left) and consistent with hyperplastic adenomatoid nodule with cystic degeneration (right)). findings consistent with multinodular thyroid disease. My Endo. recommended I started synthroid .50 to see if the nodules would stop growing or reduce in size.  I was changed to .25 because it affected my lab work and I said I was having tachycardia. I took sythoid for 6 months and they were larger not smaller.  She recommended surgery.  While getting my cardiac release for surgery we found out I have a congenital heart condition called WPW and we called off the surgery for now. I stopped taking synthroid right away. The same week I ran into my mom's doctor (physiatrist) and recommended me to start taking the following: L-thyrosine 500 Vitamin D3 6,000 I.U, and probiotics 40 billion with meals.  He said that his patients have responded very well to that treatment.  I have done that since May 2010. I had my ultrasound done in August (this week) and the nodules are slightly smaller and my thyroid in general is smaller too. I am having my lab work this week but I feel great, my energy level is normal and I have not side effects, so far.  I wanted to share this with you and get your opinion on this approach.
