This is goiter, it is mainly due to idodine defiiency. It occurs if there is less of iodine in the diet. Use iodinizsed salt for cooking

Hi doctor, i have a thyroid compliant for 6Years. I have an hypothyroidism.. I have an non toxic multi nodular goitre. Both the left lobe and right lobe is enlarged and it is stretching and compressing my voice nerves.. My voice becomes hoarseness and it seems to be double voice. Recently i suggest a doctor. He told to take thyronorm tablets. If u take tablets, there is a chance of reducing the thyroid so that you can talk with good voice. A week back my T3 is 98, T4 is 7.70 and TSH is 7.12. My thyroid levels are somewhat normal. After taking tablets also my enlargement of left and right lobe thyroid is not decreased and the voice remains same. Really i feel bad on my voice and i have a little stammering problem also. So kindly suggest me a way to get back to good voice so that it is audible to everyone!!!

Due to an enlarged lymphnode in my throat (discovered when an ultrasound was completed to diagnose a goiter), my doctor ran a full cbc and other tests to try and determine what is happening. I am exhibiting classic signs/symptoms of hypothryroidism, but TSH was 3.38 and FT4 was 0.7, so he didn't feel any need for concern. Would aneamia, as suggested by my cbc count (HCT 38, HGB 12.9, RBC 4.19, PLT 283, MCV 90.7, MCH 30.8, MCHC 34) explain the hypothyroid symptoms? (Specifically - heavy mentrual bleed, irratic menstrual cycle, dry skin, itchy scalp w/hair loss, increased weight gain and inability to lose weight, feeling cold)
