Medical Queries

We are currently receiving a high volume of medical queries electronically. We are therefore only able to reply medical queries sent by members of the BTF at present. We do however have a comprehensive range of guides on thyroid disorders and treatments available to download for free:

All Trials

Clinical trials are used to test new and existing treatments. Sometimes the results (the overall picture of the treatment’s effects) are not published - which means that other medical researchers and doctors cannot use them. If you would like to change this situation to the ultimate benefit of patients, please sign the AllTrials petition.
