The 8th March last week marked International Women’s Day, commemorating the movement for women’s rights.
However, as Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s affects a lot more women than men (7-15 times more women), I wanted to raise the fact that a lot of women go to the doctor complaining of tiredness, depression, brain fog, memory problems, weight gain etc. are made to feel as if they are hypochondriacs.

Dr Nikolas Hedberg, a well-known and well-respected passionate functional doctor, asked me if I’d be interested in being interviewed for his podcast, so naturally I was thrilled!
