The Thyroid Foundation of Canada and BGP Pharma ULC (doing business as Mylan), have co-sponsored videos on hypothyroidism to promote public awareness.

A 38-second self-assessment information video takes you to a self-assessment site that produces a PDF document of the selected symptoms that patients can print (or save) and take along with them to their next medical appointment.

There is also a patient’s story on their own hypothyroidism experience in three short separate videos.

The information provided in this video is intended solely as general information for educational purposes only. lt is not intended to replace the advice and care of your doctor, nor is it intended to be used for medical diagnosis or treatment. Should you have any questions regarding your treatment or condition, always consult your doctor or another health care professional. This video has been sponsored by BGP Pharma ULC.
