I'm a student at University of the Arts London. I have to produce a publication for my visual design course and decided to focus on Hashimoto's Disease. I suffer from Hashimoto's and found it difficult to find answers to a lot of questions. I'm not in the medical profession or a scientist. I'm just a person who suffers from this disease who wants to help others who may be struggling and create awareness. At the moment, I'm just gathering as much information as possible so I've a lot to work with. I couldn't find any statistics online about Hashimoto's. I've also interviewed a top ENDO in London and will be including that. Hope that answers all your questions?
I've not been funded by anyone. I wish I could have asked more questions on the survey but if I asked more than ten I would have been charged a fee - unfortunately I can't afford it as I'm a student.
