Disorders & Treatments
Many excellent brochures are available on a variety of thyroid
topics. They serve best to give you an overview of a particular
thyroid problem. A next level of understanding can be obtained from
this and other thyroid websites. But if you have a thyroid problem,
we urge you to read one of the books
for thyroid patients that provide much more background information,
information about related disorders, and reviews of standard treatment.
All these resources may be lacking in information about new discoveries
and current research. For these you should consult a thyroid specialist
who is up to date with new information.
Foreign language brochures and bulletins are available. The Thyroid
Foundation of Canada has an excellent set of brochures in French
and The Thyroid Foundation
of Japan has an excellent book about the thyroid for patients
in Japanese. The Thyroid Foundation of America has brochures
about hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism in Spanish. There are many
organizations for thyroid patients in other countries who have thyroid
information in other languages. The Thyroid
Federation International has information about these other resources.
Many well written patient brochures are also available on the patient
education site of the America
Thyroid Association Web page. These superb educational resources
can be down-loaded and shared with your physician and friends who
have thyroid problems.
