Description

Living Well with Hypothyroidism, What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You...That You Need To Know (Revised and Updated)

"If I could recommend only one book on thyroid problems for patients, this would be it."-Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.

Are You Suffering From:

  • Fatigue?
  • Weight Gain?
  • Depression?
  • Low Sex Drive?
  • "Brain Fog" and Memory Problems?

You could be one of the 20 million Americans suffering from the mysterious often undiagnosed or undertreated symptoms of hypothyroidism.

The Most Comprehensive Resource Available on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypothyroidism

For millions of Americans, hypothyroidism often goes untreated... or is treated improperly. This book, thoroughly researches by the nation's top thyroid patient advocate-a hypothyroidism patient herself-provides you with answers to all your questions, including:

  • What is hypothyroidism?
  • What are the warning signs, symptoms, and risk factors?
  • Why is getting diagnosed often a challenge, and how can you overcome the obstacles?
  • What treatments are available (including those your doctor hasn't told you about)?
  • Which alternative and holistic therapies, nutritional changes, and supplements may help treat hypothyroidism?

"In this first-rate book... the disorder, its myths, and medicine's successes and failures at dealing with it are thoroughly examined."-Los Angeles Times

Every thyroid patient should read this!

Posted by Reviewer1589784 on Aug 28, 2008

It would be great if every thyroid patient could hear the information in this book from their doctor. Unfortunately, the vast majority of physicians don't even recognize thyroid disorders in the patients they are supposed to help. And, if they do, they are unwilling or unable to provide the type of care that will help their patients to live a full life. This book gives patients the information their doctors can't or won't provide. Anyone suffering from thyroid disorders needs to read this book.

***** This is super book and I have learned a lot about hypothyroidism. The book has given me courage to stand up and be my personal advocate. I am having difficulty losing weight and have found that I probably need a medication adjustment. My doctor is using the old test result norm for TSH. I plan to discuss this issue with her. Mary, Thanks so much for this wonderful book!!

This is a great book!

Posted by Kevinty-One on Jul 25, 2008

The book is easy to read, easy to follow and has more information than I ever knew existed. Some comments in the book I have experienced with doctors myself; it's nice to know it hasn't happened only to me. It also gave me some ammunition for my next appointment so I will be better prepared. I couldn't put this book down once I started it, I wanted to learn more. I refer to it all the time. This is a great book!

Living Well with Hypothyroidism

Posted by Reviewer1063188 on Aug 12, 2008

I have not had the opportunity to read the book from cover to cover yet, but what I have read just skimming through to sections of interest to me, I have learned alot already and the author is describing me in this book. My daughter was born in 1971 without a thyroid and has been on thyroid since she was 6 weeks old when they realized what the problem was. They told me it was hereditary, but at the time we did not know of anyone in the family that had thyroid problems. When I was in my early 40's I then developed a low thyroid, and a month ago my son was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. My daughter and I have always struggled with our weight, and I am hoping with your book we can resolve some of our health issues and weight problems. So far I have found your book to be very educational, when I read the section about phen-phen and serotonin, I thought here we are again, when taking phen-phen it was the only time in both of our lives that we had been able to lose weight without a struggle or starving ourselves. I cried when they took phen-phen off the market because it was the only drug that had ever helped me and my daughter to lose weight. I wish they had only given it to people like me with low thyroid problems, and maybe it would still be on the market. I believe this book is going to help my daughter and I to get back on the right track and hopefully to live a healthier life. Please tell the author "Thank You" for finally giving us hope again.
