Do You Have a Thyroid Disorder?
 
If your doctor has told you that you have a thyroid disorder, perhaps you feel some relief in having pinpointed the source of your troublesome symptoms. As you may know, thyroid ailments often elude a diagnosis since they may mimic other illnesses.
 
Now that you have a diagnosis, becoming informed will help you receive better health care. The authors, specialists in thyroid treatment, can help you understand both the complex function of your thyroid and how your disorder can best be treated. In A Simple Guide to Thyroid Disorders, they take special care to lay out the basics in a reader-friendly way. Among the topics they discuss:
 
            ·  medical tests you need to diagnose thyroid problems
            ·  hypothyroidism...symptoms and treatment
            ·  hyperthyroidism...symptoms and treatment
            ·  coping with emotional highs and lows
            ·  dealing with thyroid-related weight problems
            ·  medications and surgeries for thyroid disorders
            ·  thyroid nodules and cancers
