As a Thyroid Patient Advocate, I have experienced many of the same struggles my fellow patients go through. In the chapters of this book I share some of the more helpful knowledge I gained as a newly diagnosed thyroid patient, beginning in year-2003, to the present. I also express a few opinions and take a look at some of the controversies that have continued between medical professionals and patient advocates in regard to symptoms, diagnosis and treatments for hypothyroidism. Along the way, you'll find that I added a few qrants and ravesq in regard to these issues but hopefully nothing that might be perceived as disrespectful or offensive to either side of the debates. This book is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subjects covered.
