As many as one in eight women have a thyroid condition.
In Living Well with Hypothyroidism, Mary Shomon outlines the most common of these--too little thyroid hormones in the body.
Weight gain, depression, fatigue, and what patients call "brain fog, Brillo hair, and prune skin" result.
Because the symptoms of hypothyroidism mimic so many other conditions--chronic fatigue, PMS, clinical depression--it can be very tricky to diagnose, especially since patients with HMOs may not get the thorough testing they need.
Shomon knows of what she speaks: she's a health writer and thyroid patient herself.
She also manages a thyroid Web site and writes a newsletter on hypothyroidism.
In Living Well, she offers an extensively researched guide to this complex condition.
