    1. For a newly diagnosed hypothyroid patient, I found this book fairly informative if not perhaps falling a little out of date, as books are prone to do It covered a broad range of topics for full wellness, including not only body, but mind and a touch of soul Pratt suggested many options for research, awareness, and outreach for new hypothyroid patients, and spoke in a comforting tone I did not find the style that the book was organized in appealing Pratt organizes material by the days, weeks, and [...]

    2. A bit of decent medical information infused nay, drenched in a whole lot of repetitions about how this chronic disease is going to make your life a living hell Ok, so I m exaggerating, but so is the author She goes on and on about her personal experiences and how horrible it all is Then, near the end, you discover that she has not only hypothyroidism, but Lupus and several other conditions, many of which can manifest the same symptoms Clearly, she s got a lot going on than thyroid issues, and i [...]

    3. This was a fairly superficial read, but helpful for the newly diagnosed The author s experiences interfere with the reader s understanding of hypothyroidism that is, there is too much about her personal experience, which as far as I can understand, is atypical Her experience with lupus and Graves disease does not aid my understanding of my hypothyroidism.And it was a downer The constant repetition of you have a chronic disease, is wearying I honestly don t view hypothyroidism as a chronic diseas [...]

    4. Eh, this book was just okay I didn t feel that the author should write a specific book on Hypothyroidism because not only does she have it, but she also has a host of other autoimmune diseases She even admits that she finds it hard to distinguish the pain she suffers from Lupus from the pain of Hypothyroidism However, I did feel that this author could have been great at writing a book specifically on her experiences with autoimmune diseases This is not a good guide for what to expect with this i [...]

    5. This book was full is some medical advice and a LOT of poor me this is a disaster what do I do Anyone newly diagnosed and reading this will think their life is coming to an end I ve had hypothyroidism for over 30 years since I was 12 and my life isn t HALF as tragic as all that.

    6. I ve been just periodically looking through this book since I ve been diagnoised since March of 2008 It s very informative, IMO.
