Quick Case Study Needed!

Thyroid UK has been asked to find a case study - a woman aged 20-60 who has had an illness show up in her nails.

Hyperthyroidism is known to cause problems for nails so perhaps someone would be interested in having a very quick chat with this journalist?

It's literally for a couple of sentences and you may be asked to supply a head and shoulders photo too.

It can actually be any illness/condition - thyroid, diabetes, heart problems, anaemia, vitamin deficiency.

If anyone is interested, could you please contact me asap on and let me have your phone number and permission to give the journalist your phone number.

Thanks! Lyn x

Unfortunately, we did not have anyone come forward for this one and the deadline has now passed..


I've just seen this post, sorry, as I would have contacted you straight away, my nails are wrecked since I've been back on carbimazole.
