Take back control of your thyroid disorder
Get the right diagnosis and the right treatment for you
Feel better and more confident about your thyroid health

how membership can help you

Understanding your thyroid disorder can be complex and individual. Not everyone has the same symptoms or changes to their thyroid gland.

Where do you go and how do you gain access to the right information to manage your thyroid condition and get back to good thyroid health?

As a thyroid patient, you need to feel completely confident with your treatment, medication and relating to your treating doctor.

How do you know if your medication and treatment prescribed by your doctor is going to work for you?

Many of our members talk about the frustration they felt and the lack of available information to manage their thyroid disorder before becoming a member.

Joining the Australian Thyroid Foundation will provide you access to a range of invaluable information and individual support.

Our members say the decision to join will change your life, as it has theirs!

Who is the Australian Thyroid Foundation?

The Australian Thyroid Foundation (ATF) is a member-based organisation – our members, YOU, are the heart of our organisation and why the ATF began.

The ATF is managed by an Executive Committee, who are all volunteers, most of whom have a thyroid disorder and understand thyroid health issues from personal experience. This means member information and support services are provided by people who understand and empathise with how difficult it can be when you are searching for information. We can guide you in the right direction and give you confidence to understand your disorder and to make the right choices for you with your treating doctor.

Executive Committee

The ATF is grateful to have our expert Medical Advisory Board. All members are world leaders in all aspects of thyroid disorders and support the ATF with research, education, speak on our behalf and much more. Our Medical Advisors are also here to help you when needed.
