"Be Your Own Thyroid Advocate."

Welcome to The Invisible Hypothyroidism

Meet Rachel, Hashimoto’s Warrior and Thyroid Advocate.

Welcome! I created The Invisible Hypothyroidism, an award winning patient advocacy blog, as a means for me to record my personal journey of battling hypothyroidism, but also to help others by advocating for better thyroid disease diagnosis and treatment.

I have one simple message:

“Be Your Own Thyroid Advocate.”

Thyroid disease affects so many people of all ages, ethnicities, shapes and backgrounds. This is why we need adequate testing and treatment for all. I believe in each patient getting the right treatment for them. But this isn’t easy. This is why I write with the aim of encouraging each thyroid patient to embrace advocating for themselves. 

It upsets me to see so many thyroid patients still struggling daily when we deserve to be in good health and it can be achieved.

I am a thyroid advocate as well as a writer. I am passionate about helping those with hypothyroidism and giving them a voice.

I do this by writing blogs about my personal experiences – the ups and downs – of living with thyroid disease, it’s linked conditions and my mental health. I produce informative articles, too, to educate and empower fellow thyroid patients and I write for The Mighty as well.

What lead to me beginning to blog was my own awful experience of living with an underactive thyroid and feeling like doctors were failing me. I record my thyroid journey on this blog as well as other things I learn along the way.
