Re: [IPk] Re: Vit D Deficiency



Hi Christine,

The goitres / goiters on my thyroid were visible.  They are an 
abnormal change to the structure of the thyroid & are a sign that the organ is in 
trouble
Chelsea & Westminster had done an ultrasound within 20 mins of me 
pointing it out.  

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Belinda
