Atyra Bio aims to assist practicing endocrinologists in significantly reducing the trial and error of thyroid meds prescribing -- and prevent symptoms and suffering for those who don't do well on levothyroxine.
Spearheaded by a thyroid cancer patient, Atyra Bio aims to improve quality of life for the 10-20% patients who struggle on thyroid meds.
We are busy with R&D, starting by validating our core biomechanistic hypothesis, so please stay tuned!
Patients whose thyroid is removed have to take hormones the rest of their lives. While most do fine, about 10 to 20 percent tell me they don’t feel good on the thyroid pills. They feel fatigued and have to press harder to function at their normal level.
