My Postpartum Thyroiditis Story
Written by Jenny Allen
This blog describes Jenny Allen's personal experience with postpartum thyroiditis. Some readers may find it distressing. However, we recognise that not everyone will have similar symptoms or experience the same issues with diagnosis and treatment.
Jenny Allen shares her brave story and battle with postpartum thyroiditis:
“It took over 3 years of being horrendously unwell to find medical support for my not so common presentation of thyroiditis and this was because I was labelled and not heard."

In January I attended the second meeting of NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence)'s new Voluntary & Community Sector Forum on behalf of the Thyroid Trust. I was eager to hear what progress had been made since the first meeting in October of last year.
Once again the session was lead by NICE’s CEO, Sam Roberts, supported by several NICE staff including Victoria Thomas, head of the Public Involvement team. This time there seemed to be even more charities and patient organisations on the call - showing just how important this type of engagement is.
