Thyroid Controversial Topics

Just heard the news - Mr John Lynn, leading Endocrine Surgeon, has chosen the theme for his talk to our group this month - and it's a scorcher:

Thyroid Controversial Topics.

Well I couldn't be more pleased. Looking forward to welcoming Mr Lynn to our group and to hearing his talk.

I've said it endlessly on here and it makes my blood boil, frankly that there is so much dodgy information out there on t'net, about thyroid disease (yes and about other illnesses and stuff in general too, I know).  So many people who are either misguided or seeking to profit from people who are unwell. Of course, also so many unanswered questions, so many grey areas, so much that is simply not known because sufficient research hasn't been done, or 100% proven and the whole thing is so complicated. The more I learn, the more I realise I don't know, even though I know quite a bit now. 

It will be refreshing to hear a clinician tackle this issue head on and give us the low down, as he sees it, on some of the controversies that do the rounds and that can be so confusing for patients, as well as sometimes dangerous and expensive for us. 

Oh I can't wait!

  1. I never realized that thyroid transplants were even possible. This will be such a great way to help people with disorders to keep their metabolism in order. There are so many people who's hormones just won't release the way that they should, and I'm glad that there are so many cures for these imbalances.

  2. Very informative post, Thanks for Sharing.
