Medical Queries

We have a comprehensive range of guides on thyroid disorders and treatments available to download for free:

You may also contact us via email at medical-query@btf-thyroid.org for support, though please note that it may take our medical advisors several weeks to answer your queries. We do not receive funding for answering medical queries, so please consider making a donation if you are able.

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.AllTrials petition
