I was disappointed to see Professor Colin Dyan of Cardiff, Endocrinologist quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: 'There's a strong placebo effect with these patients,' says Professor Colin Dayan, director of the Institute of Molecular and Experimental Medicine at Cardiff University.'I've done double-blind studies that have found patients can respond much more strongly to getting thyroid hormone in a trial, even when they have been getting it as a regular treatment.
'They assume it's a new and different treatment.'
as I was hoping to get my GP to refer me to him. dailymail.co.uk/health/arti...
Has anyone else seen him in person and found him unsympathetic like he appears in this article? Please let me know via PM before I make a fool of myself with my GP. Thanks
ps I am assuming it's okay to mention his name as he is in a public paper stating his point of view?
