How much does thyroid disease affect the quality of life of those who suffer them? Is this really an important or worthwhile aspect to consider and address? In my belief as a Thyroid Patient Advocate being treated for autoimmune hypothyroidism and having corresponded with 1,000s of other patients with both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid conditions since 2003, I absolutely believe this to be an important aspect.
More education has become available in regard to thyroid disease in general over the past two decades and the quality-of-life for treated thyroid patients, deserves as much attention in my opinion as do aspects of diagnosis and treatment. Much of the public lacks understanding in the fact that thyroid disease patients can be greatly affected by their disease with symptoms of thyroid hormone imbalance affecting every part of their bodies and emotions.
In this audiobook I look at different aspects of the effects thyroid disease has on its patients and at the importance of better optimized treatment and coping-methods that can help patients regain a better quality-of-life. This audiobook is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subject.

Just love books.
The authors reassurance that the symptoms of this most frustrating condition is not a result of being a hypochondriac. The narration was dreadful and I am normally a fan of authors narrating their own material.
I would hope not.
