Thyroid UK - More than just a forum!


Many, many members of this Thyroid UK Support group seem unaware that Thyroid UK is actually a charity and that we have another website full of useful information

One of the many very useful pages on the site is the one that details the thyroid medications available to UK patients. The brands and types are listed, together with their ingredients.

There is also a 'shop' section where you can buy Thyroid UK merchandise, thyroid books and back issues of our membership magazine.

Payment is easy... just use PayPal ;)

There are also lots of 'case studies' for you to browse through. These are stories written by thyroid patients in their own words, telling how much they've suffered and sometimes how they've recovered.

Thyroid UK can only continue to exist if sufficient funds are raised to support the running costs involved. Hence, there is a 'donation page' where you can contribute towards this.

Thyroid UK also has a membership which includes:

•Subscription to our quarterly magazine, Harmony

•Discounts on Supplements

•Advance notice of tickets for conferences

By being a member of Thyroid UK you are contributing enormously towards helping run the Thyroid UK office which in turn helps all of us with thyroid disease.

Finally, we have a very helpful Information Pack which contains in-depth information on the thyroid as well as the list of Private GPs and information on private testing.

The Information Pack is an A4 size folder containing the following documents:

•About Us

•The Endocrine System – An Overview

•The Thyroid Gland – An Overview


•Signs and Symptoms of Hypothyroidism


•Signs and Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism

•Thyroid Function Tests

•Named Patient Basis

•The Role of Vitamins and Minerals in Thyroid Disease

•Getting a Diagnosis and Starting Treatment

•The Thyroid and Drugs, Chemicals and Foods

•Thyroid Antibodies by Dr B Durrant-Peatfied

•Hashimoto’s Disease by Dr B Durrant-Peatfield


•Recommended Books

•Test Results Booklet

•Thyroid UK Membership Form

•Thyroid UK Fundraising Leaflet

•Thyroid UK Poster


•Private Doctors

•Support Network

•The Role of The Adrenal Glands by Dr B Durrant-Peatfield

•Information on Private Testing & Phlebotomy

A DEFINITE MUST READ, so I'd like to second Louise's post here now in 2016 by also about Reminding ALL that TUK is a CHARITY that needs funding by our voluntary donations and that it's not only a or just a FORUM for us all.

The regulars here do know but most newcomers won't yet, that the Thyroid is one of the most complex glands in our bodies and many other health symptoms or problems can later on be related to Thyroid wellbeing.

The Forum with members answers and or suggestions can often stop unnecessary time consuming visits to Dr's surgeries, wherever we live. Those who had similiar questions and answers can then make up their own minds about which advice or suggestion they choose to heed.

None of us (Med included) are medically qualified, unless specifically stated they are - but there's nothing like having lived through it ourselves to know what we have taken or done to help improve ourselves and thyroid symptoms and problems.

So I do hope lots if not all of you, will make a donation, no how small every penny counts and helps.

I did my bit because I know much of the advice here helped me get to the bottom of some of my health issues and I've managed to remove some of the symptoms shown in the long list of related ones. I'm still working on some others and getting there slowly......

......... which I would NOT have done without Thyroid UK!
