Dr Amy Myer’s generously offered to send me a copy of her second book, The Thyroid Connection, a year ago now and although I finished reading it a good six months ago, I’m finally now writing this review!
Dr Myer’s book is based around her twenty-eight day programme to get you back on track to good health, following a Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism diagnosis. She looks at diet, gut health, stress, supplements and more, all tailored to your situation. Continue reading “Book Review: The Thyroid Connection by Amy Myers, MD”
I haven’t had a giveaway competition for The Invisible Hypothyroidism before, but seeing as my following is growing so quickly these days, after reaching 200,000 views especially, I wanted to celebrate and say thank you. Thank you for supporting me and allowing me to support you in your thyroid journey.
We’re also coming up to Christmas and the two year anniversary of me launching The Invisible Hypothyroidism, so what better time to give back to the thyroid community?
Having a hypothyroid patient on your Christmas shopping list can seem daunting, especially if they follow specific diets or avoid certain chemicals, to help manage their condition/s.
So here I am with a list of ideas for present buying this Christmas season. I hope you find it useful!
(Pssst! If you’re a thyroid patient, you may want to pass this on to your friends and family!)

How difficult can it be, right? You just swallow your thyroid medication with water and that’s that.
Advice on how to take your medication, whether given by doctors, pharmacists or even on medication box leaflets, can be confusing and contradicting. Let’s explore various factors that can influence our thyroid medication and how best to take it, so that you’re getting the most out of it as possible.
Do you still feel like rubbish even though your doctor is insistent that your test results are coming back ‘fine’ or ‘normal’? Perhaps your doctor isn’t running all the thyroid tests that you want?

As a thyroid patient, there are a few different types of doctors you may see for your condition. Some can be more useful in addressing different areas of the condition than others and different patients find different success with different types of doctors. You may have tried a few of these already, but I’m going to sum up what each one is, how they look at hypothyroidism and why they may be helpful to you.
Thyroid Central kindly got in touch to ask if they could interview me for their website, which I of course said yes to. I thought it was another great opportunity to reach more people and continue spreading awareness about living with thyroid disease.
The weather is getting colder and so you may be wondering what you can do to help, since you have hypothyroidism.
I’ve put together some information on keeping warm and looking after your thyroid health this winter.
