Thyroid Awareness Week 2016 – Mufty Day!

Thyroid problems are very common and they can affect you physically with weight management issues and mentally and emotionally with depression and/or anxiety. 

Do you blame it on the thyroid or hadn’t you thought about it? Is it the reason for your low mood and lack of will power or your lack of strength and energy to eat more healthily or to exercise?

Seriously though, if you are trying to make health improvements and failing, the process may be exposing the inadequacies of your thyroid health or treatment.

Support Thyroid UK – I am on their Advisory Panel and our work is about raising awareness and educating people about their thyroid health. It’s such an important little gland … think purple this week and support our work.

This year we have decided to ask people to hold a “Purple Mufty Day” (also known as non-uniform day or dress-down day).

We are asking people to donate £1 to Thyroid UK and wear something purple on Friday 21st October 2016. You can wear purple tops, trousers, dresses, socks or shoes etc. To really stand out you could wear a purple hat or fascinator! Purple nails will really finish the outfit off!

You can take selfies and post them onto your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and then share them with all your friends and family to spread the word! Make sure you mention Thyroid UK and we can then share them too!

If you have any queries, please email


Thank you!

Warm wishes
