Here, Rachel and Adam provide an insightful, very human map of survival - and remind us that we are, as ever, never alone." - Lauren Freedman, Host & Founder of Uninvisible Pod "Gask's genuine testimony is paired with inspiring words that are sure to provide motivation and perspective that can help thyroid patients and their partners make it through the most challenging of times." - The National Academy of Hypothyroidism "You, Me and Hypothyroidism can help bridge barriers to communication and help you support those in your life who struggle with hypothyroidism.

Living Well with Graves  Disease and Hyperthyroidism

From patient advocate and author of Living Well with Hypothyroidism Mary J. Shomon, here is a holistic roadmap for diagnosis, treatment and recovery for the millions of people suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism.

From patient advocate and author of Living Well with Hypothyroidism Mary J. Shomon, here is a holistic roadmap for diagnosis, treatment and recovery for the millions of people suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism. There are an estimated 3 million-plus Americans suffering from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism, and patient advocate Mary J. Shomon will guide them through the diagnosis and the wide-ranging treatments available. Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism are the result of the thyroid gland being overactive. This gland controls the body's metabolism, so people afflicted with the disorder can suffer from symptoms such as significant weight loss, fatigue, muscular weakness, and rapid heartbeat, among others. In addition to conventional treatments, this resource uniquely highlights holistic treatments, and through case studies and testimonials from patients and doctors, presents an honest look at the lifestyles and choices of people living with these conditions. Shomon presents the reader with a comprehensive resource that spans from diagnosis to treatment to life after treatment. She goes beyond the conventional advice of other books, utilizing patient anecdotes and, as a fellow thyroid disease patient, her own experience. Her extensive network of experts—from conventional physicians to alternative practitioners—allows for a wide range of treatment options. In addition, a comprehensive Appendix serves as a fantastic resource for patients seeking treatment and additional advice. The first edition of Living Well With Hypothyroidism (2/2000) started with a first printing of 7,500 copies and has now sold over 100,000 in the US. Shomon's The Thyroid Diet hit the New York Times extended bestseller list. Mary Shomon has been praised by doctors around the country for her medical knowledge and sensitivity to patients' needs. Barbara Bush brought attention to the plight of Graves' disease patients, announcing that she was suffering from it when she was First Lady.

If Your Thyroid Numbers Are Normal But You Feel Terrible, Read This Book Tiffany Flaten knows what it's like to feel sick. For ten years, she felt depressed, irritable, and hopeless. And tired. Crazy tired. Like pregnancy fatigue every day. By her first baby, Tiffany was overweight and had high cholesterol. So why did her thyroid test always come back normal? In 2007, Tiffany was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, the "best" cancer to have. Doctors advised "easy" treatments like thyroidectomy, radioiodine, and prescriptions for the rest of her life. Then the cancer came back, and Tiffany hit rock bottom. Would she ever feel normal again? Yes! All thanks to proper nutrition. When Tiffany learned how nutrient deficiencies contributed to both her thyroid health symptoms and causes, she cured her depression, lost weight, got her energy back, and finally felt like herself again. She went back to school to earn her Master's of Science in Human Nutrition and Performance and become a board certified nutritionist (CNS). Today Tiffany teaches proper nutrition to alleviate thyroid symptoms. Her secret to helping thyroid patients turn their health around is an eight-week thyroid reset diet, a personalized thyroid eating plan and thyroid cookbook with thyroid friendly recipes for people who've hit rock bottom. Tiffany's first book, Rock Bottom Thyroid Treatment: The 8-Week Thyroid Diet for People with "Normal" Thyroid Test Results to Thrive, Not Just Survive, helps people with thyroid disorders: Translate medical mumbo-jumbo into thyroid essentials Advocate for your own thyroid healing Feel better with nutrition, the natural thyroid cure Help your thyroid function optimally Balance your blood sugar Get off the mood roller coaster Give up food rules (and cravings) Get better sleep with thyroid balance Lose weight and lower your anxiety Experience thyroid and adrenal balance Choose the right thyroid glandular supplement Rock Bottom Thyroid Treatment is the last hope for thyroid disease patients and the first step towards better thyroid health.

A groundbreaking, proven approach for successfully diagnosing and treating the millions with hypothyroidism. Depression, weight gain, fatigue, headaches, memory lapses, hair loss—these are just some of the vague, often debilitating symptoms that plague the more than 13 million patients with hypothyroidism. The typical blood test for diagnosis is often inaccurate, leaving many to suffer through ineffective treatment. But now, there is a solution: Dr. Blanchard’s groundbreaking program draws on emerging research, medical facts, and three decades of clinical experiences as an endocrinologist. This individualized program uses questionnaires and charts to help diagnose sufferers through symptoms, not only lab results. It then treats patients of all ages with the safe but little used T3 hormone in combination with the more common T4 hormone. Also including specific nutritional advice and alternative treatments, this is the one program for sufferers of hypothyrodism that really works!

Improving Life for Thyroid Patients

Improving Life for Thyroid Patients

In this book I look at different aspects of the effects thyroid disease has on its patients and at the importance of better optimized treatment and coping-methods that can help patients regain a better quality-of-life.

How much does thyroid disease affect the quality of life of those who suffer them? Is this really an important or worthwhile aspect to consider and address? In my belief as a Thyroid Patient Advocate being treated for autoimmune hypothyroidism and having corresponded with 1,000s of other patients with both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid conditions since 2003, I absolutely believe this to be an important aspect. More education has become available in regard to thyroid disease in general over the past two decades and the quality-of-life for treated thyroid patients, deserves as much attention in my opinion as do aspects of diagnosis and treatment. Much of the public lacks understanding in the fact that thyroid disease patients can be greatly affected by their disease with symptoms of thyroid hormone imbalance affecting every part of their bodies and emotions. In this book I look at different aspects of the effects thyroid disease has on its patients and at the importance of better optimized treatment and coping-methods that can help patients regain a better quality-of-life. This book is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subject. CHAPTER ONE: Are Thyroid Patients Complainers? CHAPTER TWO: Men Get Thyroid Disease Too! CHAPTER THREE: Famous Thyroid Disease Sufferers are Increasing Public Awareness CHAPTER FOUR: Oprah Winfrey's Diagnosis of Hypothyroidism CHAPTER FIVE: Thyroid Research Every Doctor Should Know CHAPTER SIX: Thyroid Hormone Replacement and Antidepressants CHAPTER SEVEN: Stress Management for Thyroid Patients CHAPTER EIGHT: Anxiety and Depression in Thyroid Disease CHAPTER NINE: My Experience with Thyroid Related Anxiety and Panic CHAPTER TEN: More of My Personal Thyroid Story CHAPTER ELEVEN: Treated Hypothyroidism and Weight Gain CHAPTER TWELVE: Book Review for "Hypothyroidism Type 2" CHAPTER THIRTEEN: Embracing Your Thyroid Disease?
