Goitre is when the thyroid gland and surrounding tissue swells. The cause of Goitre is still not understood or known, but most experts agree that it may be caused by an iodine deficiency which causes severe imbalance in thyroid functionality. If you are diagnosed with Goitre, your doctor may prescribe endocrine medications. These prescription drugs can be purchased for your convenience from Canadian pharmacies online at low prices. BigMountainDrugs.com, one of the leading online Canada pharmacies is an example of such a drug company who offer a range of these cheap Canadian drugs for Goitre.
Most patients suffering from Goitre can improve their condition, or even entirely treat it through therapy that includes iodine. One of the best sources of iodine mineral is seaweed, also known as sea kelp. Seaweed is a kind of sea vegetable, and it is packed full of iron and iodine as well as other traces. It is often used as a supplement to keep the thyroid gland healthy. Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition when the thyroid functions at too low a level. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include extreme tiredness and development of Goitre. Goitre can also be caused by certain types of surgery and radiation treatment.

Symptoms of Goitre may include a lump in the neck, which is where the thyroid gland is located. You may also notice a swallowing problem as well as wheezing. Your doctor should easily be able to diagnose a goitre due to the nature of the swelling in the throat.
There are a range of treatments, including drugs which can be purchased from online pharmacies in Canada which are discussed below. In severe cases of Goitre, surgery may be required. This is usually only limited to large Goitres that are causing severe problems for the patient, malignant (cancerous) Goitres and when other types of therapy including drugs have been unsuccessful. An assessment will usually be carried out by an endocrinologist, and assessments may be more frequent if the condition is complicated by malignancy or thyroid dysfunction. Ethanol infusion for benign Goitre is used in some countries, but it is not approved at present in the USA.
