Butterfly is designed specifically for you, the people with thyroid & adrenal issues. Your fantastic ideas, feature requests, feedback on designs, Facebook comments and general encouragement is driving every aspect of our work. We started our beta test programme in January 2017, and continue to issue invitations to over 3,500 people who have signed up for early access.
In the meantime, our team continues to work night & day to bring you Butterfly - the Thyroid Diary app.
Keeping you in sync
Butterfly tracks your activity using your phone’s built-in pedometer, and syncs data from your favourite health & fitness apps/devices to assemble a comprehensive view of your health & wellbeing. You can then choose what to share with your family, friends & healthcare advisers.
Making medication easier
Butterfly has built-in support for common thyroid & adrenal medication. It reminds you when and how to take your medication, and monitors your adherence.
Tracking symptoms effortlessly
With over 275 common hypothyroid and hyperthyroid symptoms built in, Butterfly is the simplest to use and most comprehensive thyroid & adrenal symptoms tracker available.
This is exciting! I spent four years with body pain and told I had Fibromyalgia only to find out that my thyroid medication needed to be adjusted! I cannot wait to try this app out and keep track of my symptoms! That way, I have something to bring to my doctor. It is difficult to get doctors to listen to me!Michelle Wills1 April 2016 - Facebook
What fantastic idea! This would definitely be a huge help in our daily lives. Let me add that you are a wonderful husband to be this concerned about your wife's well being. Most spouses or partners don't have a clue as to what we go through and deal with on a daily basis. Thank you!!!!Susie Sherman Deramcy25 March 2016 - Facebook
This sounds amazing! I currently use 2 different apps to manage my health, neither of which are designed for thyroid stuff, and even between the 2 of them they don't quite do what I'd like. I've looked at many of the existing apps for thyroid and found them to be too basic or limited in their scope. I like how your symptoms page is formatted and how easy it will be to record symptoms. I'm really excited about how good this could be.Louise 'James' Emms17 March 2016 - Facebook

The Butterfly Story
My wife has suffered Hypothyroidism for many years, but its only over the past 12 months that we really understood that. It’s difficult to get the right treatment in the UK, but we’ve been very lucky to have spent time with Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield, who has helped enormously.
But therein lies the problem. In order to design the correct regime for my wife to follow, Dr Peatfield needs a wealth of data. Both my wife and I have struggled with keeping track of various paper diaries, private tests, medication schedules and symptom tracking. At times of great stress, and when the brain fog descends, its the last thing we need.
What’s missing is a way to bring all of those things together in one place, and so the idea for Butterfly was born...
News from Butterfly
By far the most asked question on the Butterfly Facebook page is: will this be available on Android? The short answer is ‘hopefully’! There are a number of reasons why I chose to build Butterfly for iPhone first: Apple leads the way in providing support...
One of the requests I’ve had is to make Butterfly’s reminders stand out from the usual iOS alerts. Technically, that’s a challenge due to the way Apple limits how the initial notification looks, so I thought about other ways for Butterfly...
