Famous People With Thyroid Disorders
This is a simple list of well-known people who suffer (or have suffered) from thyroid disorders. It is not meant to be anything more – you can go off and find much more information about the people elsewhere. The information has been collected from many internet sites. People are in alphabetic order of their names (not surname).
Role = a very simplistic “why is she/he famous”
Type = summary of disease type, sometimes does not make much sense, “??” indicates questionable
Please send a private message to helvella if you find anything wrong, or have suggestions of people to add – include a link if you have one. I found so many very short lists or stories about one person and I would like to make a much, much bigger list.
Thought: This list includes three presidents of the USA – more than 6% of all of them, and all male.
I suspect I have forgotten dozens of people who I know should be included, let alone the untold number I do not know about.
Picture is last one of Abraham Lincoln while alive.
