Format: Paperback
I bought this book after being diagnosed with Graves Disease in March this year. I cannot deny - there is an abundance of very useful info. For example, did you know that Graves Disease can lead to more pronounced water retention and actual puffiness/bloating? I didn't until I read this book. And the book gives advice regarding what to do about it. I found other useful bits of information too, such as the areas describing symptoms and the translation of typical thyroid hormone test results. Through this book I discovered that I was acutely sick. I could have died at any time (it's a good thing the doctors didn't tell me this because I would have panicked even more!).

BUt...this book is let down by the diet and exercise recommedations, which focus on hypotyroidism rather than hyperthyroidism. It does this on the assumption that most of us will go from hyper to hypothyroidism at some point. There is absolutely NOTHING in it for those suffering from ongoing hyperthyroidism. Nothing about diet and nothing about exercise. The title led me to believe that I would find some help, some relief that I had not been able to find from conventional medicine or on the Internet. I had no such luck. Instead, it focused on the symptoms of hyperthyroidism but did not tell me anything that I didn't already know about how to improve my lot in the medium to long term.

If you are looking for more information than is available on the Internet, this is probably the book for you. If you are serious about looking for explanations, advice and hope with dealing with Graves Disease, you will not find it in this book. What you will find is a rehash of the info available for hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's syndrome, which is not exactly helpful for those of us who have had Graves for a long time and have no prognosis in sight.

It's a disappointment, hence the three stars.

As the previous reviewer has stated, there is lots of great information in this book but I bought this book as I have recently been diagnosed with Graves disease and wanted to know what my life would be like 'living' with this disease and the title seemed to give the impression that I would get some answers. Unfortunately very little of this book is actually set aside for this purpose. If someone in your family is suffering from a thyroid disorder or you think you maybe have this illness then this is probably a good book for you but if you have been diagnosed then you will gain very little other than being told how you already felt before your treatment. "Living Well With Graves Disease" is certainly not what this book is about.

This book is very helpful and informative. Suitable not only for those with thyroid problems but their family and friends too, it would help them gain insight into how the thyroid sufferer feels.

This is the first book I have bought on this subject, after a family member was diagnosed with Graves' Disease. It is clear and concise and offers a broad approach (including some supplementary alternative options such as nutritional advice). As a previous reviewer said, it is critical to get your head around the distinction between Hyperthyroidism and the Hypothyroidism which may well result from treatment of the former. Generally though a good first book for the lay-person.
