I, Rachel, am not medically qualified and do not offer medical advice. I write this blog based on my real life experiences as a thyroid patient. It is based on what I have read in books, research and studies and have learnt from patient to patient forums and discussions. I may be able to give evidence by linking to research or reliable websites, or quoting from well researched books or studies and research and I will do this where I can.

If you choose to explore self-medication or something based on what you’ve read here, you do so at your own risk and choice. The same experience for everyone is not guaranteed. There is no guarantee that anything written or opinions given applies to you or your symptoms. Everyone is individual, and what works for me may not work for you. No warranty is implied whatsoever about the accuracy, completeness, or specificity to you. Neither the owner of The Invisible Hypothyroidism, nor anyone else who has contributed information to the Service warrant that the information presented by the Service is indicated, applicable, effective or safe in any individual case.
