    Please sign the Global Petition for better care

    There is a petition for better care and diagnosis of hypothyroidism here
    http://intlhormonesociety.org/index....omHack_idp=109

    It is really important to get heard before this state of affairs deteriorates any further, it is in everybody's interest to sign.

    If you have friends with loved ones or who know how poorly you are with your condition and with the treatment don't forget to email on the petition for them to sign if you can

    luv Dawnx

    I am gonna sign this up but not quite sure how this will affect us as it seems to be a global petition and it's highly unlikely that our doctors would listen to anything like that

    I've signed up - hopefully someone high up will suffer too and get some proper publicity and help for us hypos. Heard more stories this week - met someone who is on 175mcg thyroxine , bloods only taken once a year and then because she was slightly into 'normal' range they dropped her 25mcg an told her that her ensuing syptoms were depression! Rubbish! Hope everyone enjoyed the Easter break x Katy

    Hi sleepsuit
    I know, all this bad management of our disease is terrible, more and more people we are hearing of. I hope also it does some good in the long run.
    take care
    luv Dawnx

    I signed this a long time ago, but I'm wondering when the closing date is and to whom it will
    be presented when complete?
