Based on cutting edge research, this book tells you all you need to know about thyroid disease – types, causes, medical treatment and self-help. Frequently misdiagnosed or overlooked, thyroid disease can be subtle and insidious, accounting for a range of symptoms including depression, fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, dry skin and thinning hair. Yet, once correctly diagnosed, it is very treatable. This book explains the thyroid's role as a powerhouse for the whole body, and why it's important to support conventional treatments with holistic measures. Topics include: • The healthy thyroid and the role of iodine • Testing your thyroid • 'Subclinical' thyroid disease and ill health • Goitres and nodules • Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism • Autoimmmune thyroid disease • Thyroid eye disease • Thyroid cancer • Fertility and pregnancy • Diet and how to lose weight • Drugs and diseases that may affect the thyroid • Stress and emotions
