Overview

Since the 1970s, conventional dogma has said that hypothyroidism treatment is optimal when a patient has a "normal" TSH level, even if the patient's symptoms persist. Dr. Donna Hurlock, who is hypothyroid herself, knows that this misguided approach leaves both patients and practitioners frustrated and searching for solutions. During her decades of medical practice treating women's hormonal challenges, Dr. Hurlock developed and finetuned the innovative hypothyroidism diagnosis and treatment protocols featured in "Patient-Focused Hypothyroidism Treatment." This valuable guide for patients and practitioners reviews the overt and subtle clinical signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism and explains why the current lab-based guidelines often leave patients misdiagnosed and undertreated. You'll also get detailed information on how to safely and successfully dose thyroid hormone replacement to not only relieve symptoms while avoiding overmedication but also to prevent many long-term complications of undertreated hypothyroidism. Whether you're a thyroid patient or practitioner, "Patient-Focused Hypothyroidism Treatment" is a practical and life-changing roadmap to true wellness!
