Some time ago I wrote about our experiences in California when I took my daughter there to see a doctor who had been recommended to us.
He revealed to us that sometimes thyroid illness is not just an illness in itself, but can be a symptom of what some doctors are now called Chronic Complex Illness:
I have periodically posted other information about various aspects of this Chronic Complex Illness which can attack every part of the body including the endocrine system, and thus thyroid function.
This may not be the answer for everyone, but I'm sure there are many on this site for whom this information may be helpful.
The difficulty until now has been that I have been unable to find a clinic in this country that would carry out the necessary tests to uncover the problem, and I know that for various reasons many people are unable to travel to California for help.
So here is the good news - I have at last found a clinic in the UK that runs the very same tests that my daughter had in California (and more) which uncovered the truth about her thyroid illness.
Many of you have contacted me during the last year for information and I apologise for not contacting you all individually with this information.
If you wish to receive information about this clinic please contact me by PM and I will gladly send it.
