Suggest Treatment For Enlarged Thyroid Nodules

Hi. I have high calcium level (11.1 in 2014 and 11.2 in 2016). Just got results of PTH as 168. Ultrasound on thyroid showed nodules, maybe one thyroid enlarged size. Dr. ordered dye/scan on parathyroids and summary report states I have an overactive parathyroid, and want me to see surgeon. I do prefer natural remedies and just read about boron. Any advice for natural remedies? THX

Hello,
About 5-10 % of thyroid nodules are cancer so you really need a biopsy before you explore alternative therapies. If it is not cancer then see a local naturopath for the best advice about alternative therapies.

Dr. Robinson
