ATTENTION. PLEASE READ: World Register of Counterexamples
Thyroid Patient Advocacy (Reg. Charity No. 1138608) www.tpa-uk.org.uk is in the process of creating the first world register to T4-only therapy. This short, but extremely important survey is applicable only to those who continued to suffer symptoms on T4-only therapy, and who found those symptoms were mitigated or disappeared once they were started on a T3 hormone containing product.
The Register of counterexamples will be used to draw to the attention of those responsible authorities throughout the world, the dire need for an urgent re-examination of the existing protocol for the diagnosis and management of the symptoms of hypothyroidism and challenge those studies previously undertaken (900 participants) that concluded that T4/T3 combination worked no better than T4-only.
The objective of this Register of Counterexamples is to draw to the attention of those responsible authorities throughout the world, the dire need for an urgent re-examination of the existing protocol for the diagnosis and management of the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
Counterexamples prove incontrovertibly that endocrinology's stance is dangerously wrong. Doctor’s continuance of practising in line with the T4-only treatment diktat for all sufferers of the symptoms of hypothyroidism is pernicious. The number of patient counterexamples, at the present time, stands at 1610.
(A counterexample is a situation which fits the concept or premise of an idea but produces a different result. To be responsible, a scientist who finds a counterexample to his idea, must limit or abandon his idea as unworkable or not reliable. The T4-therapy does not work for all)
Please will you post this message on your web site so that your readers (or members of your support forum) have the opportunity to register their thyroid status. If you, or any of your readers/members fit this category, you/they should complete the 3 questions with either 'YES', 'NO' or N/A here http://www.tpa-uk.org.uk/register_of_counterexamples.php .
