Reseña del editor

Hypothyroidism is a chronic illness caused by the underproduction of the hormone that controls the body's metabolism. This book gives an unusual insight into the many facets of hypothyroidism. Løhre, who is both a teacher and psychologist, has written a personal and colorful narrative that describes the progress of the illness, its symptoms and treatment. Some of the symptoms can call to mind functional difficulties associated with head injuries or ADD (Attention Deficiency Disorder). This applies especially to the problems with concentration and memory, as well as to the rigidity and susceptibility to emotional ups and downs. The hypersensitivity to sound and light has a certain similarity to autistic patterns of reaction. The book also recounts conditions that are basic in all chronic illness: anger about being ill, discouragement, grief and, lastly, reorientation and adaptation. In addition, questions about the period of restitution, degree of recovery and possible complications are discussed. Both professionals and those affected by hypothyroidism, directly or indirectly, will find this book useful. For professionals and students, it is a valuable supplement to already existing literature. The author's close-up of her experience with hypothyroidism should inspire more research in this field.
