  • Monitor thyroid replacement therapy in people with hypothyroidism
  • Monitor anti-thyroid treatment in people with hyperthyroidism
  • Help diagnose and monitor infertility problems in women

Thyroid Foundation of Canada

National Board is accepting nominations for positions on the Board for the coming year 2018-2019. Come join our enthusiastic team Help us to Help others! You could be helping someone near and dear to you.

The Thyroid Foundation of Canada was the first lay organization in the world, created by thyroid patients for thyroid patients. We are the voice of thyroid patients in Canada! In 2017, we created a five-year Strategic Plan that modernized our vision and mission, defined our core values, strategic objectives and initiatives, and updated the national organization. We established a telephone support team to better respond to our Help Line calls and initiated a project to redesign and modernize our website. There’s still much to be done and we need your help!
