'The Thyroid Patient's Manual' is a practical, easy-to-read book, which provides an excellent resource for people who are trying to understand and recover from hypothyroidism.

'The Thyroid Patient's Manual' is the author's latest book. However, it may well be worth reading this book first before continuing to the others, as it provides a solid foundation on hypothyroidism and treatment. The book uses important recent research and is likely to add new knowledge and insight to even those thyroid patients who are already well read on the subject.

The book covers all the main thyroid hormone treatment options, including T4 (Levothyroxine), NDT (natural desiccated thyroid), T3 (Liothyronine) and all combinations.

It is aimed at patients who suspect they have low thyroid hormone levels, those who have just been diagnosed and are beginning treatment and those who are on thyroid treatment already, but are still feeling ill.

An easy-to-grasp series of steps is presented that includes information on thyroid and adrenal hormones, diagnosis of hypothyroidism and selecting the right treatment. It explains why those with Hashimoto's thyroiditis or have had thyroidectomies often find that conventional treatment leaves them with remaining symptoms. All the common problems that can get in the way are discussed, along with their solutions. It is consistent with recent research studies on thyroid diagnosis and treatment, and references many of these throughout the book.

It covers all the common problems that interfere with the success of thyroid treatment, including mineral and vitamin deficiencies, low cortisol and many other issues.

It is a manual, so it is very specific about ideal levels for test results and levels that are a concern.

The chapters of the 'The Thyroid Patient's Manual' are written in a sequence that is designed to help a patient move forward using the best series of steps in order to recover. The book is designed to help thyroid patients recover from hypothyroidism as quickly as possible.

The book is immensely practical, easy-to-read, and absolutely full of essential information for the well-informed thyroid patient (much of which will be new to many thyroid patients).

'The Thyroid Patient's Manual' gives you the tools needed to gain some control of your health, and be able to work productively with your doctor, so that you can recover your health as fast as possible.

Note: This book does not replace either of the previous two books ('Recovering with T3' and 'The CT3M Handbook'), which are vital to read for those trying to use the T3 thyroid hormone safely and successfully.

With the release of 'The Thyroid Patient's Manual', Paul Robinson's hypothyroidism books now form a complete series ('Recovering from Hypothyroidism series').

All of Paul Robinson's books are available from Internet booksellers, including Amazon.
