The conference in the US on Dissatisfaction of Patients on Thyroxine Therapy is now out in Thyroid

The symposium held earlier in the US, with Dr A Bianco as one moderator, is now published in full in the latest edition of the journal Thyroid. I'm going to get a full download and send it through to TUK when received.

Interesting survey. I was especially interested in this comment, "Prospective clinical trials of combination therapy have not been conducted that have specifically recruited dissatisfied patients or patients with the lowest circulating T3 levels. No trials have incorporated assessment of deiodinase or thyroid hormone transporter polymorphisms into their primary design. Retrospective data suggest that patient preference may be linked to a patient’s complement of thyroid hormone metabolism-associated polymorphisms (42,43)."
