If you've been told you have thyroid problems, we need to talk. Bette Dowdell has been there and done that, and this book talks about what Bette learned that got her hair, brain and energy back.
Thyroid problems are a mess, and they lead to even larger messes if you don't take care of business. This book has the "in the trenches" information you need to answer your questions.

Medical poobahs insist that thyroid problems are easy to diagnose and easy to treat. They're not even close to being right.
In fact, most of the people with thyroid problems are told their thyroid's just fine, thank you very much. And if a thyroid problem does happen to be diagnosed, the treatment won't give you back your lost energy--or anything else.
But despair isn't the appropriate response. Get your "Oh, yeah!" attitude in place and dig in to learn how the thyroid works, and start making good things happen.
Yes, it's possible. And, yes, it's safe. So there's no reason to give up on yourself. Knowledge is power.
Bette Dowdell never volunteered to be a thyroid expert. She was drafted when her thyroid quit working, and doctors didn't help.
As it turns out, thyroid blood tests are inaccurate, and treatment can make things worse. Then, as you wonder if you'll ever feel good again, the doc says, "You're fine!" Sorry, doc, but brain-dead and tired-like-you-can't-believe is not fine.
This straight-to-the-point book tells you what makes the thyroid go astray, how to recognize symptoms, the wide range of diseases causes by a whacked thyroid, how to self-test your thyroid--the kind of information you need to understand thyroid problems.
Most of what we "know" about the thyroid is wrong. To have any shot at feeling good again, we have to get it right. Things You Need to Know About Your Thyroid (but nobody tells you) will give you a leaping head-start in getting things right.
