This book -- and the newly printed "Living Well with Hypothyroidism" -- have been pivotal in my experiences as a hypothyroid patient. Perhaps the most important thing I've learned is that newer research shows that many thyroid patients feel better with a medicine that contains two types of thyroid hormones (T4 and T3). Currently many of us are still on pills like levothyroxine or Synthroid, which only have one type of hormone. Although I haven't yet convinced my HMO doctor to change my medicine from the traditional Synthroid, she did increase my dose and I already feel better. This gives me hope that I can feel even *better* on a medicine with both T4 and T3.

Since I was previously diagnosed w/ thyroid cancer and hashimotos, I have been doing more research lately - I thought based upon the reviews that this book would be helpful - I found her book, despite her thyroid issues, to be very unhelpful and is the same crap the surgeon that did my surgery pushed at me, your TSH is fine, you're fine. Well what he wasn't testing was my Freet T3 and Free T4, which were at the very bottom of the range. Since I have no thyroid - no wonder I have felt like absolute crap for over 5 years. Maybe people that are just hypo the Levothyroxine regimin works for them, but not having one that drug did squat for me, and she says if you're on Levothyroxine/Synthroid, your thyroid is not your problem. I swithced doctors and got on that "evil" dessicated thyroid, and wow - the one symptom that has been super unbearable the last six years is better - weird, not better on crappy levo, better on ancient outdated dessicated thyroid.

I would rather spend my money on those alternative books she belittles, because they actually seem to go in the right direction. Don't waste your money on this book.

M. Sara Rosenthal's book offers a good overview of thyroid disease, and is an excellent source of easy-to- understand information on most aspects of thyroid disease. This second edition has the latest information on smoking and thyroid eye
disease; osteoporosis and thyroid hormone; post-partum thyroid disease; nutrition and diet; the continuing problem of iodine
deficiency around the world; as well as an expanded discussion of symptoms in sections she calls "Hyperalphabet Soup" and "Hypoalphabet Soup."

I was diagnosed with thyroid disease early 1999. Trying to deal with the daily medications is one thing, but changing my lifestyle to adjust to the disease is another hassle. A friend gave me this book to read hoping that I could educate myself further on what the doctors always seem to fail to inform you. Wow, the things one learns... such as how to eat and how much to eat, the risks involved with thyroid disorders, and how to work to overcome any future troubles. I will continue to pass it on to others who also have been diagnosed with this strange, yet more common disorder. This is The Tyroid Bible.

Format: Paperback
the basic info in this book was okay, and provided some background, but definitely do your research on every side of the argument. A topic like deserves a balanced and thorough discussion, which she does not provide, she gives very little basis for rejecting natural hormone replacement (manly stating over an over simply that it is outdated and inconsistent) well...unfortunately so is a lot pharmaceuticals. The book starts to sound a little "big pharma" for my tastes towards the end and I have never heard any doc tell you to take multiple missed doses all at once (granted I am not a doc, just doesn't seem to make much sense to me to flood your system). Her nutrition section is horrible, now this is an area where i do have some expertise and she is still recommending the old food pyramid based in carbs and pans the keto diets (such as Atkins) she needs to be more familiar with these topics prior to trying to sound like an expert. Balance is good in your diet (ie neither carb based or keto) but HELLO!! they have redesigned the food pyramid and even though its still not perfect its getting better. Her section on complimentary therapies is a basic over and reads like a spa menu...again if you can't fully discuss it don't write about it. in short this book looked more interesting on the shelf.

I immediately bought this book after I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. After reading the Thyroid Sourcebook I more fully understand my doctor and can be proactive in my treatment. Thank you for writing a book for the common person facing a tough situation, and including such complete and positive information about treatment. Your book, above all others, has given me confidence and knowledge.

I have recently read this book and recommend it most highly. It is written in a way that can be read by almost everyone yet is neither condescending nor incomplete.

If you are suffering from any of the many forms of thyroid diease or are related to someone who is you should take the time to read this book. It will allay your fears and nightmares and will offer clear information in it's stead.

It covers the disease(s), the treatments, the doctors, and the tests fully. It has a good index, an appendix full of further reading and good starting points for a net based information search.
