    Comments Vote petition "Fund research into T3 and/or natural desiccated thyroid treatment for hypothyroidism"

    Thyroid UK has submitted a Government e-petition asking them to fund research into T3 and/or natural desiccated thyroid treatment.

    Please sign our e-petition

    by going to http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/19000

    The wording of our e-petition is as follows:
    Fund research into
    T3 and/or natural desiccated thyroid treatment for hypothyroidism

    Many patients with hypothyroidism continue to have symptoms on levothyroxine (T4) but find that their symptoms are often greatly reduced when they take liothyronine (T3) or natural desiccated thyroid.
    Natural desiccated thyroid is only manufactured in the US and Canada but can be prescribed in the UK on a "named patient" basis.
    Many doctors will not prescribe it because there are no randomised controlled trials as it was manufactured before licensing of medicines came into being.
    Research has shown that some patients have benefited from natural desiccated thyroid but there needs to be more research done to investigate whether this would be a better treatment for patients.
    More research also needs to be done on the addition of T3 to T4 because previous research has been inconclusive.

    Please support ThyroidUK by signing this petition.

    If this gets 100,000 signatures, it will be sent to the House of Commons. The Office of the Leader of the House of Commons will then check it to make sure it meets the terms and conditions for e-petitions and the rules of the House of Commons. (To learn how e-petitions work, go to: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/how-it-works)
    Successful e-petitions will be communicated to the Backbench Business Committee who decide if it will be debated in the House of Commons.
    The closing date for this e-petition is
    13th October 2012
