Thyroid UK now has links with a new thyroid organisation in Norway.
Anne Marie Rosenvold, President told us "Thyroidea Norge (Thyroid Norway) is a newly formed organization for thyroid sufferers in Norway. Our aim is to educate the thyroid patient so she may have the tools necessary to have an informed dialog with her GP. We believe knowledge is power, and hope to have a position in which we educate the population in general.
We also want to work towards an international co-operation as the problems we suffer with bad diagnostic tools, inferior research and inadequate treatment is world-wide. We want to work with lobbying towards politicians to improve our rights in the Norwegian social security system and to promote more and better research in this area.
We also hope to have a dialogue with endocrinologists and GPs so that we may work together towards improving the situation for thyroid sufferers.
Our slogan: We believe in improvement is possible!"
If you know anyone from Norway who needs help with their thyroid conditions send them their website: thyroidea.no
