Thyroid problems can so often be an associated factor in so many conditions e.g. fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, absorption issues such low vitamin B12, vitamin D, iron and more, chronic fatigue syndrome, sleep issues and many more.

PLEASE HELP and if you agree SIGN and SHARE (Facebook, Twitter, etc) the e petition below.

THYROID SUFFERERS REALLY NEED YOUR HELP.

Anyone can succumb to Thyroid disease although it mainly affects women. The results can be mild to very severe. It has the ability completely to destroy a person's and their family's lives, e.g. unable to work, infertility problems, relationship problems and severe mental health problems. I could go on.

I myself have lost nearly 15 years to this debilitating disease. Despite all efforts, I've lived in constant pain, experienced extreme weakness, cognitive problems, severe dizziness/vertigo to name just a few symptoms. This made me largely house bound, unable to participate in much of daily life and reliant on others for help. Throughout this period, the NHS only offered me thyroxine (T4 the inactive form of thyroid hormone).

Thankfully, having done much of my own research, I'm now on the road to recovery having found other treatment options namely, Liothyronine/Triodothyronine (T3 the active form of thyroid hormone) and Desiccated Thyroid (NDT) which contains T1, T2, T3, T4 and calcitonin (the same as a human thyroid).

Many people do well on the conventional treatment of T4 only. However THOUSANDS of thyroid patients are suffering unnecessarily. The economic cost to the UK in terms of general and mental health care, welfare benefits and employment costs of maintaining this narrow approach must be significant and I have little doubt would well exceed any additional cost which a broader choice of NHS medication options would require. So in real terms, although hard to quantify, there would probably be net saving to the Exchequer and NHS.

LET'S SEE IF WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THYROID SUFFERERS IN THE UK AND POTENTIALLY GLOBALLY.

ALL WE NEED TO BE HEARD IS 10,000 signatures. WHY NOT HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF 100,000 signatures.

Many thanks for you help.

Best wishes
