“As President of Thyroid Federation International, I encourage you to think carefully about whether you or someone you know might be suffering from a thyroid disorder. If you suspect this to be the case, go to your doctor and ask to be screened with a simple blood test. In the hands of a healthcare professional, thyroid disorders can be well managed.”

— Ashok Bhaseen, President of Thyroid Federation International
