I am new to this site after trying to look for help on the INTERNET as my GP is just refusing to help me with my Hashimoto's which was diagnosed in 2008.
Looking at the thousands of people suffering from Thyroid disease I think it is time that Government / NHS starts looking at this the same way as they look at Diabetes - as a life threatening long term disease!
I am not sure if a petition to government has ever been done regarding Thyroid disease but one could start an e-petition and if we obtain 100 000 signatures the petition is considered and may go to parliament for debate. The frustrations we experience and ignorance from doctors need to be addressed and I feel that as a large group supporting the same cause we might make some headway?
What are your thoughts on this?
