LET YOUR MP KNOW ABOUT THE THYROID PETITION

THYROID PETITION

The Petition set out below was handed in to the General Medical Council by Diana Holmes and a small deputation on February 9th 2006 and a receipt obtained for the said Petition at that time. 2035 patients family and friends signed the Petition. I am accepting further signatures these will not be handed into the General Medical Council but will be added to the 2035 to add weight to the campaign that I have been running for the Past 12 years re the diagnosis and management of thyroid conditions.

The Petition was lodged with the General Medical Council as a formal complaint against the clinical practice of the majority of the medical profession with regard to the diagnosis and management of hypothyroidism on four counts: -

THYROID PETITION
1. Over reliance on thyroid blood test results and a total lack of reliance on signs, symptoms, history of the patient and a clinical appraisal.

2. The emotional abuse and blatant disregard by the majority of general practitioners and endocrinologists over the suffering experienced by untreated/incorrectly treated thyroid patients and their lack of compassion over the fate of these patients.

3. Stubbornness by the majority of general practitioners and endocrinologists to treat patients suffering with hypothyroidism with a level of medication that returns the patient to optimum health. In addition, the unwillingness to prescribe alternative thyroid treatment for patients on individual clinical grounds. For example a combination of T4/T3, T3 alone or a natural thyroid treatment such as Armour Thyroid.

4. The ongoing reluctance to encourage debates or further research on hypothyroidism.

In addition we formally request an independent investigation into patients who are hypothyroid, which includes examination of clinical results of patients treated by private doctors (whose work is outside NHS directives), and comparative examination of clinical results of patients treated by NHS practitioners who diagnose and manage hypothyroidism.

Failure to address these issues will result in a vote of no confidence in the General Medical Council.
