with two close family members diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, Louise decided to take part in the Hampton Court half Marathon in aid of the BTF. she explained her motivation: I always thought thyroid problems were straightforward and that you just took a pill to sort it out! It turns out this is far from the case. The effects on my family members have been far reaching. Just some of the symptoms of an overactive thyroid are palpations, muscle weakness, anxiety and depression to name a few. Getting the balance of treatment right can be tricky too! I wanted to support the BTF's work raising awareness for thyroid conditions. Louise raised £111.00 for the BTF
