Dr. Henderson and thyroid patient Allison Futterman’s book, What You Must Know About Hashimoto’s Disease, is vastly different to other thyroid books I have read, in the way that it is extremely comprehensive and aligning with my own views of each thyroid patient being individual, therefore requiring an individual approach.
Dr. Henderson goes through the fundamentals of hypothyroidism, with the patient insight and experiences provided alongside by Allison Futterman, a person living with Hashimoto’s.

The Invisible Hypothyroidism isn’t the only source of information out there, for thyroid patients. Heck, before I started this website I read up about my new diagnosis and what it meant, on what must have been hundreds of websites and articles.
However, filtering websites can be daunting, so I’ve summed up a list of places below.
Paul Robinson from Recovering with T3 is a fellow thyroid patient advocate and writer here in the UK, which is refreshing as I can’t say I come across many compared to how many US thyroid advocates there are.
Why is this relevant? It’s important that UK thyroid patients who are on the NHS here in the UK are advocated for and given a voice, and Paul does just that.
I was featured on Episode 4 of Korus’ podcast yesterday, speaking about Hashimoto’s, hypothyroidism, my new book, support for the friends and family of thyroid patients and more. You can listen to it below or head to the website here.
I was lucky enough to win a copy of this ebook in a competition a few months ago. Whilst it is predominantly about Graves’ disease, the condition that leads to hyperthyroidism, it does touch on Hashimoto’s in places and I’m aware that some thyroid patients can have both conditions or antibodies for both. Also, some hypothyroid patients initially start out with Graves’ and/or hyperthyroidism, before becoming hypothyroid.
Tales From The Graves’ contains anecdotes, stories and personal experiences from over 120 thyroid patients, alongside a beginner’s guide on what Graves’ is, the signs and symptoms and issues that many people with it face.
I’ll reference back to this book and what I’ve learnt from it throughout my blog posts.

You may remember that back in October, I participated in the first cycle of Thyroid Refresh‘s 30-day wellness adventure that focuses on living a healthier thyroid lifestyle. Thyroid Refresh very kindly let me trial it for free.
As we approach a new cycle of Thyroid30®, I’m going to review my experience of taking part in it myself, so that you can consider if it would also benefit you.
