Format: Paperback
Having just recently gone through my own health issues with my thyroid, including a complete thyroidectomy and cancer treatment, I found this book very helpful. The book is written by a doctor and a "lay" person who has had his own thyroid problems, so you get the best of both worlds: a doctor of endocrinology who deals with thyroid disease as part of his practice and knows his stuff and a real person who can make the information readable and understandable. Not that the information is dumbed down, it is just assessable and if you have ever dealt with a doctor who only speaks medical-ease, you'll appreciate the approach that the authors use here. The only reason that the book is getting four stars rather than the full five is that I would have appreciated more information on dealing with life after a full thyroidectomy and the RAI cancer treatment. I felt that the book was geared more toward the patient who needs to take medication to adjust to their condition vs. patients who must undergo a complete thyroidectomy. With that said, this is still a terrific book for anyone dealing with thyroid problems.

This book is easy to understand and AWESOME. It provides tons of information that doctors should know but don't know. This is a great book for understanding autoimmune disease and what you can do to heal it without ending up on drugs for life.

This book is easy to read, simple to understand and answered more questions of concern for people I know who
suffer from Thyroid Disease than I originally thought I had. Symptoms are clearly addressed as valuable suggestions to alleviate them, make it
possible to have the symptoms subside or disappear.

I especially noticed that Thyroid Disease is addressed from many different perspectives. I've gained a more thorough
understanding and have greater responsibility around managing my own health and well-being from a complete and total perspective.

The Complete Idiots Guide provides the most comprehensive understanding of a dysfunction which plagues most men
and woman in their mid to later years. This is an asset for my library and a manual that I can reference for years to come.

This book was very easy to read and understand. Being a nurse, I still learned a ton of new information. My doctor was also impressed by the book and had to buy one himself. After two weeks I am starting to feel a little better, thanks to this book.

Excellent book with much needed information if you are dealing with any type of thyroid issues or suspect you might have a concern with the thyroid. It is helping me understand the results from my thyroid blood test and seems to have provided me with more information than my Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor offerred. Easy to understand and provides simple to understand explanations for thyroid problems, diseases and tests. I highly recommend this book....read it BEFORE going to your doctor.

This guide is great. It is extremely descriptive yet it's also an easy read. It's great for understanding all of the aspects of thyroid disease. I suffer from hypothyroidism and I needed a legitimate guide to help me out. This book is the best thing I've found and I know that I will not stray from it. I highly recommend this guide because it is the most easy to read and most accurate one out there.

This book is terrific. I found out so much about my thyroid and why I have been feeling the way I do. This book has a ton of information, obviously told by an authority on the subject with a real way with words. Thank you - thank you - thank you for making this truly easy to understand. I now realize the role of my thyroid in my health and what I need to do to get it back on track.

Having lived for many years with an under-active thyroid, I have learned more about my condition from this book than I have from any doctor. I believe that we must all advocate for our own health and this book gives a great starting point to do just that. I for one have already initiated more comprehensive blood testing. Thanks to Dr. Alan Christianson and Hy Bender!
