Someone kindly recommended a video presentation by Lucinda Bateman from last years IACFSME conference where she summarised her hypothesis of ME (ME's) based on emerging research integrating findings on : autoimmunity; the brain; and the autonomic nervous system. It's worth watching (Ihr 15min inc Q&A) in full. However at 16.00 min in she refers to data I think she presented as a poster that claimed that 30% of her patients have, as I heard it, hyperthyroidism and that while some of that may be due to inappropriate medication, that wouldn't be enough to explain these high rates. Later in the presentation she refers to hypothyroidism so I'm not sure which she meant but regardless high rates or thyroid problems have been discussed here but without much data to go on. Anyone know where the data came from and it this was published?
