How very diffcult it would be for sportspeople if thyroid hormone taking were banned. How on earth can anyone determine "genuine medical need"? We see so much difficulty in determining exactly that in post after post!
Wada rejects calls to ban elite athletes from taking thyroid medication
UK Anti-Doping has expressed its disappointment at the World Anti-Doping Agency’s decision to reject calls to ban elite athletes from taking thyroid medication.
In April, Jo Pavey, the reigning 10,000m European champion called for an end to the “unethical” use of the hormone replacement as an alleged performance-enhancing drug.
However, Wada has opted to leave thyroid medication off its 2016 prohibited list after consulting scientific and medical experts who “were unanimous in their view”.
