Paul is an active advocate for thyroid patients through his regular blog posts, which offer a wealth of information that both relate to his books as well as current news and insights.

Autoantibodies are produced by the body when the person’s immune system is attacking an organ. They are markers that this is occurring. For example, the Thyroid Peroxidase Autoantibody (TPOAb) usually present in high amounts in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. TPOAb is often accompanied by the Thyroglobulin Autoantibody (TgAb)  in Hashimoto’s patients.
