About Thyroid UK

The Thyroid UK community is for anyone with diagnosed or undiagnosed underactive or overactive thyroid disease.

Thyroid UK is a charity that supports people with thyroid disease and related disorders.

We support people by informing them of various aspects of thyroid health and testing as well as other conditions such as adrenal deficiency, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and genetics that affect thyroid function.

Your health journey is unique. HealthUnlocked can help you identify your unmet thyroid health needs allowing you to ask for the most appropriate support so that you can improve your health outcome in a way that is personalised to you by taking the Needs Assessment survey. Simply click on your profile picture and select "Your needs". The survey will take no longer than 3 minutes to complete and you can retake the assessment multiple times (up to once a month) giving you a tangible way to measure improvements in your health.
