    First year thyroid patient

    I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease and am struggling between hypo and hyperactive symptoms concurrently. The Thyroid Balance is informative and gives a general overview of thyroid disorders and treatment options 'including alternative medicine options' for all thyroid conditions. It touches on the topic of when surgery is necessary and when patients may benefit from another course of action 'i.e. acupuncture or other holistic treatments, avoiding certain foods that may trigger the disorder' I think its a great book to get started with and I would defintely recommend it to a friend. However, it was published in 2003 so I would check with a doctor to see if any of the information needs to be updated or if additional research has been done.

    Beware of this book!

    I browsed thru this book briefly, but what I did read let me know this book is a lemon. I could mention several points of misinformation in the little that I read, but I will only mention the statement that made my Gravesian eyes pop out further from my head. The last sentence in the segment about the antithyroid medication PTU says, 'Do not take PTU if you are pregnant or nursing.' The authors clearly are not aware that the treatment of choice for pregnant and breastfeeding women is PTU! If they don't know this fact, I would doubt any other statement in the book. I wouldn't waste my money on it.
