The Thyroid Patient's Manual
THE THYROID PATIENT'S MANUAL is Paul Robinson's third book.
This book discusses the use of ALL thyroid hormone treatments.
A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO GETTING IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT AND GAINING SOME CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH!
The Thyroid Patient's Manual is a practical, easy-to-read book, which provides an excellent resource for people who are trying to understand and recover from hypothyroidism.
It is aimed at patients who suspect they have low thyroid hormone levels, those who have just been diagnosed and are beginning treatment and those who are on thyroid treatment already, but are still feeling ill.
This book deals with all the main thyroid hormone treatment options, including T4 (Levothyroxine), NDT (natural desiccated thyroid), T3 (Liothyronine) and all combinations.
An easy-to-grasp series of steps is presented that includes information on thyroid and adrenal hormones, diagnosis of hypothyroidism and selecting the right treatment. It explains why those with Hashimoto's thyroiditis or have thyroidectomies often find conventional treatment leaves them with remaining symptoms. All the common problems that can get in the way are discussed, along with their solutions. It is consistent with recent research studies on thyroid diagnosis and treatment, and references many of these throughout the book.
It covers all the common problems that interfere with the success of thyroid treatment, including mineral and vitamin deficiencies, low cortisol and many other issues.
It is a manual, so it is very specific about ideal levels for test results and levels that are a concern.
The book is immensely practical, easy-to-read, yet absolutely full of essential information for the well-informed thyroid patient (much of which will be new to many thyroid patients).
The Thyroid Patient's Manual gives you the tools needed to gain some control of your health, and be able to work productively with your doctor, so that you can recover your health as fast as possible.
Note: This book does not replace either of the previous two books ('Recovering with T3' and 'The CT3M Handbook'), which are vital to read for those trying to use the T3 thyroid hormone safely and successfully.
With the release of The Thyroid Patient's Manual, Paul's hypothyroidism books now form a complete series (the Recovering from Hypothyroidism series).
