They also want to work towards an international co-operation as the problems we suffer with bad diagnostic tools, inferior research and inadequate treatment is world-wide. They want to work with lobbying towards politicians to improve patient rights in the Norwegian social security system and to promote more and better research in this area. They also hope to have a dialogue with endocrinologists and GPs so that they may work together towards improving the situation for thyroid sufferers.
