Taking Control

As your thyroid hormones impact both body and mind, they can produce a wide variety of symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose and equally difficult for patients to explain their symptoms to their doctor.

If you are worried about thyroid dysfunction please try our simple Symptoms Checklist and arrange to speak to your doctor about any symptoms you are experiencing.

You can also use the Wellbeing Diary to keep track of how you are feeling over a fortnight or a month. Keeping a written account of your wellbeing will help you explain your symptoms to your doctor upon your next visit, allowing them improve the accuracy of your diagnosis.

A correct and early diagnosis of thyroid problems can lead to faster relief from distressing symptoms and reduce the risk of serious complications.
