A complete guide to understanding, treating, and living with thyroid disease, from Harvard Medical School

More than 13 million people in the United States suffer from some form of thyroid disease, and that number is expected to rise precipitously as the baby boomer generation approaches its sixties.

Written by an internationally respected authority on thyroid disease, Dr. Jeffrey R. Garber, The Harvard Medical School Guide to Overcoming Thyroid Problems is an up-to-the minute, authoritative source of practical information for thyroid patients and those who think they may have a thyroid problem. Working from the belief that "being informed is your best cure," Garber:

Explains how the thyroid works, what can go wrong and why, and how to work with a doctor to feel better and stay healthy Dispels common myths and misconceptions about thyroid disease and describes the best diagnostic tests and both conventional and alternative treatment approaches Covers the most common forms of thyroid disease in detail, including Graves' disease, Hashimoto's disease, and thyroid cancer
