Metabolism is the subject that Dr Michael Mosley will be presenting where he will cover thyroid disease. This is on Trust me I'm a doctor on BBC2 on Wednesday 8th February at 8pm.
I gathered 8 of us who were filmed in Walsall in December. We are each holding a sign with a hypothyroid symptom on. We got to choose which symptoms. We also took the empty pots and wrappers of our thyroid medications for them to take a photo, we have almost every type.
A lady (who may be a member on here??) is interviewed about her hypothyroidism and then Dr Anthony Toft is interviewed.
I have asked them to put Thyroid UK details on their website and the Midlands support group which I run.
I am always pleased to see programmes about thyroid disease as it reaches out to the people who don't go online.
The Researcher chatted with us as she is hypothyroid and has been wanting it to be covered on the programme for some time. Sadly not everything can be covered but hopefully the message will get across of the difficulties being diagnosed and treated. Also the horrible experiences of hyperthyroidism.
So, let's hope that they have done a good job of piecing it all together.
