The following post from the British Thyroid Foundation popped up on my facebook:
"This week we celebrate International Thyroid Awareness Week 2017. Sometimes the signs and symptoms of thyroid disease are difficult to spot and the physical and psychological impact of a thyroid disorder is underestimated.
Please help us raise the profile of thyroid disease this week.
International Thyroid Awareness Week 2017 - British Thyroid Foundation
The British Thyroid Foundation is a UK charity dedicated to supporting people with thyroid disorders and helping their families and people around them to understand the condition.
I wrote this comment:
"I wish you would help the people that really need to understand about thyroid conditions - GPs and Endocrinologists. I mean ALL thyroid conditions and their consequences. I cannot convert T4 into the active hormone T3 and believe me this is a real condition. This has made me ill for years, it is not always reflected in thyroid function tests apart from having a low FT3 which is hardly ever tested by the NHS. I can get no NHS treatment and I am not the only one. It is so, SO WRONG and somebody should be standing up for people suffering from ALL thyroid conditions."
