'The Thyroid Patient's Manual' is a practical, easy-to-read book, which provides an excellent resource for people who are trying to understand 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 finding the right treatment.
It is a manual, so it is very specific about ideal levels for test results and levels that are a concern and should be discussed with your doctor.
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.
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.
