I agree Cristiana! My nodule was 5 mm when I had been gluten free for 6 months(that was when it was discovered). A year later it was 3.5 mm. I do think that for celiacs, at least, that thyroid problems including nodules are helped by the gluten free diet.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to help me. I cannot thank the people on this forum enough.
Through the post today, I received my report from my colonoscopy. It says "There was a lot of solid faeces in left colon despite taking full prep. Note elevated tTg - Celiac Disease."
I was wondering does this mean that they have diagnosed it as Celiac? Is it normal for the bowel preparation to not work as well?
Thank you for everyone's help on this forum.

Having said that...from what understand Magnesium levels are hard to ascertain because it is stored in the bones. But a deficiency can cause fatigue.
Also a lot of these issues cause insomnia and poor quality of sleep. Would you say that you sleep well? Meaning fall asleep easily and wake rested? If not you may not be getting good quality sleep?
