Suzann offers advice on managing thyroid treatment


Suzann has learned a lot in her search for the best approach for treating her thyroid condition. She is a big fan of the well known medical writer Mary Shamon. Suzann offers our members the following advice:

I have seen a nutritionist before….what a great education I got. Lost 30lbs…but it came back slowly. I still recommend it though. The information I told you about came from a book a friend of mine gave me. I believe every person who even think they might have a thyroid problem should read this book. “The Thyroid Diet” by Mary J. Shamon – http://www.thyroid-info.com. These days we need to be our own doctors. I believe everyone should seek professional medical help, but before you go educate yourself, be your own advocate. I did and I got results. Mary states in her book, “be persistent, but unemotional…..show the doctor articles about thyroid disease that reflect your symptoms”. She goes on to say you need to fully explain your symptoms. Don’t just say I have gained weight…..tell the doctor I only intake 1500 (or whatever your intake is) calories a day and I am still gaining weight. Or I sleep 10 hours every night and by dinnertime I am exhausted. I stress this enough to everyone. My last endo told me my problem is not endocrine related….no??? then why am I feeling better on T3 replacement? Get this book….it will change your life!
