Thyroid disorders affect one in every 20 people in the UK at some point in their lives. Once diagnosed, however, thyroid conditions can be treated effectively and good health restored. In this comprehensive handbook, Dr Rowan Hillson offers clear advice on how to recognise when something is wrong and what you can do about it. She discusses problems of both overactive and underactive thyroid, thyroid eye disorders and goitres. The book covers all the treatments available and also offers preventative advice on how to avoid thyroid disorders.
