Are You What You Eat?

Patients with TED or Graves' disease are invited to attend a half-day meeting in Cardiff on Friday 22 April 2016 from 12-4pm. This is an opportunity to meet other patients and share your views to help progress research into thyroid eye disease.


The meeting focuses on research into diet - specifically the role it plays in eye disease - and includes the latest research on pre/probiotics in health and disease. The two presentations will be followed by a patient group discussion.

12 noon: Lunch
1.20pm: Presentations
1. How changing my diet improved my view (Lynne Kyffin, TED patient)
2. Pre/probiotics in health and disease (Colin Hill, University College Cork)
2pm: Patient Group Discussion
3pm: Tea/Coffee
3.30-4pm: General discussion

If you would like to meet other patients and thyroid specialists involved in research, please get in touch as soon as possible as places are limited.
