I know I am in danger of repeating myself but my impression is that all the above speakers will tow the RCP line as are BTF

They are keeping many people sick

who would want to go to a meeting run by these dinosaurs (the british thyroid foundation) oh and its safe to say that I personally will not be joining the antiquated British Thyroid foundation who has an atiquated president ( Graham Williams) who clearly does not listen to patients who suffer with the only treatment they favour ( I wonder who is lining whose pockets).


I was asked to give a presentation and I spoke all about my experiences on T4 compared to T3+T4. If you disagree with the BTF all the more reason to get involved otherwise nothing will change.
