People with thyroid disease face several critical challenges:
1. Recognizing their own various and seemingly unrelated symptoms as a potential thyroid problem, and getting their doctor to recognize the symptoms as well
2. Having the thyroid tests interpreted liberally enough to catch many low-level cases of thyroid problems.
3. Getting the right dosage of the right medicine.
4. Convincing the doctor to even recognize the symptoms, and test for a thyroid problem.
5. Once diagnosed, treated, at optimal thyroid hormone blood levels, and on the right mix of thyroid drugs...figuring out what to do you do if you STILL don't feel well?
Ridha Arem's book does an excellent, fairly groundbreaking job on points 1 and 2. Unlike the other currently available patient-directed books on thyroid disease, Dr. Arem's book talks honestly and openly about symptoms such as brain fog, depression, loss of libido, weight gain, anxiety, and many others. These are symptoms that all too frequently, doctors either deny, ignore, don't recognize, or attribute to causes other than the thyroid. Arem has also researched and analyzed the relationship of thyroid disease to brain chemistry, and resulting depression, anxiety disorders, mood disorders and other mental and emotional effects -- in great depth. This is a subject simply not covered in any of the current thyroid-related books available to patients. It is to Dr. Arem's credit that he has greatly added to the scientific understanding of the mind-thyroid relationship.

I run a support group in England and this book re-iterates everything I have been telling my members. I have so many people telephone me with the same problem "I have been tested and it comes back "normal" or "borderline". "I feel so ill, and no-one will listen to me". Perhaps now some of our British doctors will be able to read this and realise that they can't keep sticking to the "range" so rigidly whilst so many women are ill. Lyn Mynott

Format: Hardcover
THE THYROID SOLUTION by Ridha Arem, M.D. not only provides a vast amount of information regarding many types of thyroid disease but also underscores numerous readers' many insecurities and doubts evolving from years of being ill and seeing physcians that were unsupportive and not medically helpful. Furthermore, the case examples cited in this book are clearly very real, thus making the book read like a story. Consequently, this storybook quality enables the reader to cover many chapters of information in one sitting.
In conclusion, THE THYROID SOLUTION by Ridha Arem, M.D. is a one-of-a-kind resource that should be distributed to all patients with thyroid disease as well as practicing physicians and also those in training. Without Dr. Arem's medical and psychological insights, patients and physicians will continue to operate in the blind which obviously does not promote sound physical or mental health.

This is such an interesting and thoughtful book. Ridha Arem responds sensibly and sensitively to his patients, whilst keeping an open eye on current medical research. He gives detailed descriptions and examples so that the reader can really grasp the different ways that thyroid problems manifest themselves. After reading this book patients can go to their own doctors with well organised thoughts about their condition and treatment options....

Format: Paperback
If you have, or suspect you have, a thyroid problem then BUY THIS BOOK!! I was diagnosed 12 months ago but felt like I was just treading water. I bought this book after reading other Amazon reviews - and I'm glad I did.
There is a chapter entitled 'No you're not making it up', which kind of sums up everything for me. The whole book reassures, educates and warns you about what to expect. Some parts are a little scary and could turn you into a hypochondriac - but on the whole I feel better informed and am ready for a clash with my GP.
I wish this guy was based in the UK because I'd book myself an appointment with him tomorrow!!

I have suffered from a thyroid condition for 15 of my 30 years. Finally there is book that discusses the mental problems that are associated with this problem. The doctors that I have seen for this condition are only interested in the labs results. Now I have the knowledge to help myself as well as help my doctor to help me. This is a must read for anyone that suffers from a thyroid condition.
