Summary in Italian

Le disfunzioni della tiroide sono poco trattate, ma ne soffrono moltissime persone, la cui vita è complicata da una diagnosi che arriva spesso in ritardo perché alcuni sintomi vengono sottovalutati o addirittura considerati normali. Ne abbiamo parlato con Lauri Martin della Thyroid Foundation of Canada, e Tania Smith, presidente di Thyroid Patients Canada.

  1. I have not watched the broadcast but am wondering if there was any discussion on patients that had their thyroid removed and what to look for afterwards. I have had a partial thyroid removal and I have no energy what so ever. All my blood work is ok so I was told. If I was to ever have another chance I would not have had it done. I was diagnosed with Graves disease, therefore had the thyroid removed.

    Thank you
