Welcome to the new home for Ultrahypo!, a blog to support endurance athletes with thyroid disease. Ultrahypos is an informal support group, a spin-off from an ultrarunning discussion group back in 2004. There are only a couple of dozen members but we all have been able to support each other in getting treatment and wading through the difficulties of getting treated for thyroid problems while trying to participate or compete in an endurance sport.
You can read my thyroid story here.
Please check out the links and posts as they are added. I expect the blog to be fully functional as of April 2010.
If you are interested in joining this low-key, informal group, please write to me at ultrahypo at gmail dot com with Ultrahypo in the subject line, and I will write back with further instructions. Each group member's identity and information is confidential and I only share information if I have permission from all parties interested in contacting each other.
I hope this blog is as informative and helpful as you expect it to be. Thank you for visiting, please introduce yourself either by posting a comment or e-mailing me.
