    The guidelines that the RCP has issued on hypothyroidism are completely ridiculous and I feel so sorry for UK patients. I lived in the UK for several years, but I'm so glad I left so that I'm able to get correct treatment.

    I had an atrophic thyroid gland shown on ultrasound, but with a TSH before treatment of 3.1 after 20 yrs with symptoms. Synthetic thyroxine made me more hypothyroid and I have to use Armour thyroid to function.

    It is beyond belief that the RCP issue guidelines but do not refer to scientific research. Commercial interests must somehow be involved here.

    But maybe I should thank the RCP, as hypothyroidism patients around the world are getting increasingly more informed and angry, and this is hopefully the last straw.
