I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism six years ago and have found it increasingly frustrating the lack of information I get from my GP, and even endocrinologist. Luckily there is a host of information online, and although we are told not to look up our ailments online (not everything you read on the web is true you know), what else am I supposed to do?

Most of the information on this site will be from a combination of the following sources, this is where I have taught myself about the condition thrust upon me, all the symptoms that it causes and how to deal with it. As my research continues I will add to the list and please get in touch if you have any useful additions.

NHS Choices
An obvious trustworthy source, and great for basic information on hypothyroidism and the symptoms.

Endocrine Web
Another trustworthy source packed with information and diagrams and information about hypothyroidism along with other endocrine conditions.

Thyroid UK and British Thyroid Foundation are UK based thyroid charities.

The Invisible Hypothyroidism
A blog with the most amount of information I’ve seen in one place about hypothyroidism! On researching the condition for this blog and trying to generally find information from a UK source, this site has been the best. Along with the Facebook group, the information from here is what has encouraged me to challenge my medication and not just accept living with the symptoms.

Hypothyroid Mom
Another comforting website full of information and with a personal and compassionate touch, making me feel like I’m not alone.

Stop the Thyroid Madness
A website detailing patient experiences and encouraging you to challenge those ‘normal’ blood test results.

Thyroid Friends
A UK based support network who meet up regularly (in London) and the only UK support group I have found so far (it’s not as easy as you think to find support groups).

      Hi,

      I hope you are well?

      After speaking with you briefly before regarding how thankful I was for you referencing TheInvisibleHypothyroidism.com in your recommended resources list, I’d like to take this moment to ask if Never Mind The Thyroid would be interested in getting involved with my upcoming book – releasing on 23rd November 2018.

      It’s called ‘Be Your Own Thyroid Advocate: When You’re Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired’ and I’m really excited about it. I am planning to use the quote from your site about The Invisible Hypothyroidism on the back cover, so your site would be promoted via the book essentially.

      Therefore, would you be happy to read an early copy (preferably a digital copy to save time) and provide a review on your website?

      Feeling so thankful for your kind words about my site previously, I’m happy to provide a free copy of the book.

      Let me know what you think!
