pennyannie, can you post a link for this please, or at least say where you got the info from
Sorry I can't do cut and paste, I just glaze over, it's on TPA forum posted by Lindsayp.
From that page :
"The company is now actively recruiting for their final cohort so please contact the site urgently, before the end of September 2020"

I heard something about this but I would be surprised if anything comes of it. There are fewer people with Graves' disease than people that suffer with hypothyroid. I wonder if more men suffered with thyroid disease would the medical profession actually look for a cure or even give better treatment. Sorry to any men who suffer with thyroid disease but it is man's world in my honest opinion. When I used to take my husband to my appointments to see my Endocrinologist he would talk to my husband instead of me. I felt like telling him I was the actual patient not my husband.
Just wondering why you (or even your husband) didn’t point this out,,,
I felt too ill to fight my corner because I was virtually bedridden because I had been left untreated for over 2 years. I was very thin and I was balding with shaking and sweating. Now I feel well I would not have stood for it and I tell doctors exactly what I think if I disagree with them.
It’s for people who has had thyroid cancer for the trial, wish we could just get the drugs we need, instead of being left with nothing
Thanks, I read that too
