Hello Dr Habib!
first of all welcome to this group.
Regarding the queries u raised---
Iodine deficiency is not the only reason for goiter, but yes it used to be a cause for big goiters couple of years back especially in endemic areas, but still the prevalence of goiter is there (not extinct yet) after around 2 decades of iodization. the goiter still persists (the latest data is around 17% in Delhi) and majority of these goiters are goiter grade 1, 1a and occasionally grade 2.
Goiter is also seen associated with stressful conditions like Puberty and Pregnancy. in these cases one may develope physiological enlargement of thyroid gland known as physiological goiter.
Secondly goiter can be associated Graves' disease ie the classical example of hyperfunctioning of thyroid gland in iodine excess areas or ?because of excess iodine.

one more thing i forgot to add.. some time big nodules and cystic swelling in neck can be confused with goiter, even hashimoto thyroiditis causes firm feeling glands.

Dear Saurav Arora I am agree with you, that Iodine deficiency is not only cause of goiter,data provided by you satisfied my mind, Almost in every city Iodized salt used by every person, but the problem of goiter is still persisting. Indication is clear cause is something else.

now another mistery is, the cause of simple goiter and toxic goiter is same?

well to be precise in Homoeopathic terms, the cause lies beneath the layer, deep inside. it's the predisposition a man is born with, intermingled with the complexity of our environment, this interplay of man's constitution, his environment and thinking is the major cause of disease. Goiter is seen in people who have strong history of stress, familial predisposition, psoric, pseudo psoric or sycotic traits.

I prefer bovine supplements compared to synthetic brands because it does a better job of managing my symptoms than synthetic thyroid hormones.
