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.
An obvious trustworthy source, and great for basic information on hypothyroidism and the symptoms.
Another trustworthy source packed with information and diagrams and information about hypothyroidism along with other endocrine conditions.
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.
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.
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).
