Bring natural dessicated thyroid/ t3 medication to India

This petition had 34 supporters

The present replacement medication for thyroid patients and thyroid cancer survivors available in india is only levothyroxine i.e. t4 harmone. It is a medically supported fact that taking t4 harmone alone is not improving the quality of living for the users. Throughout the world, thyroid patients are being treated with natural dessicated thyroid harmone or a synthetic t3/t4 combination. None of which are available in India, a developing nation. It may not sound like a burning issue in this country but if you are a thyroid patient, you would know how it would feel to not have sufficient energy go last throughout the day, constant shortness of breath, weightgain despite our best efforts, moreover that helpless feeling when your doctor ignores your complaints all the time and says how normal our conditions are. I am a thyroid cancer survivor and I feel it might be lot better to give up on life than fight this everlasting battle which I cannot win (atleast not without the said medications). Please understand our agony and sign this petition. Thank you.
