Goitre is a condition in which swelling of the neck occurs due to enlargement of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is located at the base of our neck. This gland produces thyroid hormone which helps to regulate the metabolism of our body.

Symptoms of Goitre

  • Swelling at the base of the neck is the main symptom of Goitre.
  • Coughing, hoarseness.
  • Difficulty in swallowing and breathing.
  • Tight feeling in throat.

Causes of Goitre

  • Iodine is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones and hence its deficiency causes Goitre.
  • Graves' disease: It is a condition in which antibodies which are produced by our immune system attacks thyroid gland and leads to excess thyroxin production. This condition is also known as Hyperthyroidism.
  • Hashimoto's disease: It is a condition in which thyroid produces too little thyroxin and this condition is also known as Hypothyroidism.
  • Pregnancy and menopause in women may cause Goitre. Thyroid cancer may result in Goitre.
  • Development of nodules in both sides of neck leads to Goitre and this condition is called as Multinodular Goitre.
  • Solitary thyroid nodules are another condition that can lead to Goitre. In this condition, single nodule develops in one part of our thyroid gland and most of these nodules are non-cancerous.
  • Family history may cause Goitre. Certain medications increase the risk of developing Goitre.

Role of diet in Goitre

Healthy diet is not only required for healthy thyroid, but for the overall health of the body. Foods that are prepared by using iodized salts only should be included in the diet to manage the symptoms of Goitre. Milk is one of an important diet for Goitre. Food such as old rice, barley, Moong dal, cucumber, dairy products should be taken in the diet. Onions, egg yolks, citrus fruits and oats are good for Goitre. These help in reducing the swelling of the neck. Avoid sour and heavy foods as much as possible.

Goitre in Ayurveda

Goitre is known as "Galaganda" in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, Goitre is caused by vitiation of Kapha and Pitta doshas.

Is there any Ayurvedic treatment for Goitre?

Treatment of Goitre depends upon the underlying cause of this condition. In general, small goiters don't cause physical problems, but large goiters may cause difficulty in breathing and swallowing.
