New Paper - Managing the Thyroid Process


This new paper, written from the patient's viewpoint, has recently been posted on the Thyroid UK website and can be viewed using this link:

It explains why the TSH blood test only identifies overt, primary hypothyroidism and overlooks all other types, why TSH should not be used to determine medication dosage when a patient is under treatment, and why symptoms and FT4/FT3 levels should be used instead. It can be given to the patient's doctor to help assure adequate treatment.
