Hypothyroid Patient Understanding and Treatment Survey

Dr. Antonio Bianco and colleagues at the University of Chicago are looking to understand what "foggy brain" is. Many hypothyroid patients that are treated with different forms of thyroid hormone replacement therapy complain of "foggy brain". Unfortunately, this specific complaint is hard to comprehend and evaluate.

Please complete the survey to help them improve understanding and treatment of hypothyroidism. Your participation in this research project is completely voluntary. We expect this survey to be completed in 5 to 10 minutes. The survey is anonymous and no personal information will be retained or distributed.

September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month

Thyroid cancer is a malignant tumor of the thyroid gland. It is relatively uncommon compared to other cancers. In the United States, it is estimated that in 2016 approximately 64,000 new patients will be diagnosed with thyroid cancer, compared to more than 240,000 patients with breast cancer and 135,000 patients with colon cancer. However, fewer than 2,000 patients die of thyroid cancer each year. In 2013, the last year for which statistics are available, over 630,000 patients were living with thyroid cancer in the United States.
