Dublin journalist Shan Kelly set up Thyroid Support Ireland through this web site http://www.mythyroidireland.webs.com in April 2010, three years after being diagnosed with Graves Disease.
It is now may2013 and TSI has 145 members . We now have a Thyroid Support Ireland page on Facebook.
The motive is to provide thyroid patients living in Ireland with access to information about thyroid illnesses and on the latest medicines and treatments available here and abroad. Shan also wanted this site to help people get support and health tips from other people living with thyroid illnesses.
Thyroid Support Ireland now has members in Donegal, Belfast, Waterford, Tipperary, Limerick, Mayo, Cork and Los Angeles and we are in contact with thyroid patient groups all over the world.
