While some studies showed poor resolution of various symptoms with T4 only, and some studies showed that patients prefer the combined therapies, the conclusion the authors came to is that T4 supplementation with TSH monitoring is still the standard course of treatment for hypothyroidism. Steven Hotze, author of Hypothyroidism, Health and Happiness , tells us that hypothyroidism is epidemic. When a patient presents with signs and symptoms associated with hypothyroidism, such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, decreased fertility, depression, impaired immune system, sleeplessness, and digestive disorders, to name just a few of the manifestations, Dr. Hotze notes that it is easy to see why doctors often turn to prescribing a drug to treat the symptoms. He laments the fact that, while well meaning, doctors are no longer taught to understand the underlying causes of these symptoms, but are now taught to simply choose a drug from their armamentarium. A great deal of difficulty lies with the reliance on testing. Hotze asks, if we are only going to rely on testing, what is the purpose of seeing the patient?
Steven Hotze reveals how commonly hypothyroidism is overlooked, misdiagnosed, and mistreated in women and men, and gives you just the information you need to prepare yourself to obtain help. Too often, individuals with all the signs of low thyroid are prevented from accessing the simple, inexpensive and effective treatment for hypothyroidism. Hotze has been on a mission to get this message into the hands of women and men, particularly those in midlife, for more than 20 years. The answers you will find in this book about the signs, symptoms and treatment of low thyroid conditions are no longer a part of the conventional medical approach to hypothyroidism. Steven F. Hotze, M.
