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 thyroiduk.org
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:
•The Endocrine System – An Overview
•The Thyroid Gland – An Overview
