Scottish Parliamentary Committee Meeting

Just to remind readers that the meeting on Petition PE1463 regarding the treatment of thyroid dysfunction and its current problems in diagnosis and treatment will be held at 9.15 am on Thursday next in a Committee room of the Scottish Parliament. It will be available in video form I believe. I hope to convince the Committee that the current paradigm of thyroid deficiency treatment is inefficient, wasteful of medical time and resources, uses the wrong tests to control treatment, commits the sin of categorisation of patients anywhere into the normal ranges rather than treating them as individuals with their unique targets for health, promotes biochemical markers over patient symptom presentation rather than the other way round and is detrimental to the health, wellbeing and economic activity of a significant minority of patients suffering from thyroid insufficiency or total loss. In short the need for a thorough unbiased review of current practice.
