Thyroid Nodule diet

What is the diet I should follow?.....

I have a big lump in my thyroid. So I am concerned  about my diet. My endo didn't inform me about diet regulation.
Is cabbage a gatrogenic vegetable?

What vegetables and fruits I shoud avoid?

Cabbage may cause diffuse [uniform swelling rather one nodule] if nodule is not producing hormones no special diet is really necessary

Thank you 898,

I am recently having headaches basically when I carry heavy loads of weight....Is this the symptom of thyroid?

If I run for ten min on trademill I get headache.It was not the case six months back......Why are these headaches coming...weekly once I am having these types of attacks. Not severe. Just comes and goes..like reminder that u are not healthy and sick..

Please advice.

thank you...you are so helpfull..

Unless the nodule is pressing on the blood vessel of the neck there should be no connection between nodule and headache.
The compressive symptoms are evident  by presence of dilated veins on the upper chest and the neck.

Have you looked into the possibility of iodine deficiency? goiters are a symptom of iodine deficiency. look up the research of dr.brownstein and abraham .

Iodine deficiency will result in diffuse goiter first; then few nodules will form in it after 30-35 years of age.

I have only one nodule...I think mine is not a diffuse goiter. Daily I am taking mutivitamin tablet.

My endo didn't tell me anything about Iodine difciency in my case. Should I ask my endo to check the levels of iodine in my blood? is there a test?

*898,my nodule is not at all painfull and I can move my neck freely ...there is no compressin of blood vessels around my neck..I assume.

Please help.
