Hi there

Yes, I would agree that it would be prudent to have the nodule removed.

Hi, I have hypothyroidism and it seems that the doctors can' t get the dosage of my Eltroxin right. I walk 4km every day and eat the Weigh Less diet but still pick up between 200 and 400grams a day. Can their be something else wrong.
