Book DescriptionThe thyroid is one of the most important parts of the body, regulating metabolism and organ function. Thyroid disorder can manifest as hypothyroidism (too little activity) or hyperthyroidism (too much activity). Symptoms can range from mild to serious, but thyroid problems are 90 percent curable if detected. This complete, up-to-date book covers every aspect of both conditions, incorporating case studies and including special chapters for pregnant women, babies, children, adolescents, andwomen over 50. Another chapter discusses vitamins, the role of iodine, how diet affects the thyroid, and the role of stress.
