Thyroid disease and ME/CFS


SKU: #239 Category:


We get asked a lot by people with ME/CFS whether their thyroid gland may be playing up and, if so, whether this might be adding to the severity of their ME/CFS symptoms and making them feel even worse.

Some of the symptoms of thyroid disease do indeed overlap with ME/CFS – so this is a condition that MUST be excluded before a diagnosis of ME/CFS is confirmed.

This leaflet summarises all the key information that people with ME/CFS need to know about the thyroid gland, testing for thyroid function, and the treatment of thyroid disease.
