There are some people who don’t experience any symptoms of thyroid nodulosis.
But that’s not the case for many others.
“I’m a regular guy who doesn’t have thyroid nodular hyperplasia, so I can’t go into any details,” says Dr. Richard L. Hargrove, a cardiologist and director of the Cleveland Clinic’s thyroid program.
In the meantime, he recommends getting checked by your doctor to make sure you’re not developing symptoms that you don’t have.
If you do have symptoms, you can take some of the following steps to treat them: Take a multivitamin, which is a form of vitamin D that helps to maintain healthy cells and cells’ ability to function.
For most people, it’s a good idea to take at least 250 milligrams a day.
A daily dose of vitamin C may help too.
Some people also need to take a high-dose thyroid hormone called levothyroxine (also known as metoprolol) that can help them to build up more thyroid tissue in their body.
The FDA also recommends taking two low-dose drugs called citalopram and doxycycline.
These drugs work by blocking the release of thyroid hormones and also prevent their breakdown.
You can also take calcium supplements, like calcium chloride, or get regular checkups.
But take these steps with the knowledge that the condition doesn’t always appear on your health charts and is usually treatable with medications.

That will allow you to get through the rest of your life, if you take that medication, and that’s really important.”
Talk to your doctor If you are worried that your symptoms might be a symptom of thyroid cancer, talk to your health care provider about them.
Hormone therapy may help with the symptoms, but it doesn’t necessarily treat the cancer.
“There’s no way to cure thyroid cancer,” says Hargrot.
If thyroid cancer does appear in your body, you should see your doctor immediately.
“It is not a cure, but I think that it’s helpful for people to have some information about thyroid function, and it helps to know that this is a very treatable condition that has a relatively low risk of developing into cancer,” he says.
And if you’re concerned about how your thyroid is functioning, you may be able to talk to a doctor to learn more about what’s going on in your system.
