Some recent media reports have suggested that patients with hypothyroidism may receive no benefit from levothyroxine. Please read our short statement which seeks to clarify some of the facts which were presented.
BTF Founder and Project Manager Janis Hickey received her MBE from HRH Prince Charles at the investiture at Buckingham Palace on 4 April 2019. Janis said ‘What a wonderful event it was, and lovely to meet other recipients from different walks of life and hear about their work. It was a proud moment to walk into the Ballroom to receive the award and discuss the BTF with HRH Prince Charles, who was interested in the work we do.’ She's pictured (second from right) with her family after the ceremony.
We are delighted to announce the winners of the BTF Research Awards 2019. For the first time we're awarding two grants of £20,000 to projects which will fund research into thyroid cancer and congenital hypothyroidism.

Clinical trials are used to test new and existing treatments. Sometimes the results (the overall picture of the treatment’s effects) are not published - which means that other medical researchers and doctors cannot use them. If you would like to change this situation to the ultimate benefit of patients, please sign the AllTrials petition.
