Graves' disease is one of several causes of hyperthyroidism. In "Graves' Disease And Hyperthyroidism", Dr. Zaidi, a leading endocrinologist, describes how to accurately diagnose and treat Graves' disease as well as other causes of hyperthyroidism. The medical treatment of Graves' disease has not changed in over 50 years. Sad, but true! The standard, usual treatment with Radioactive iodine is a superficial, myopic approach. It almost always makes you hypothyroid (underactive thyroid state). Then, you need to be on thyroid pills for the rest of your life. In addition, radioactive iodine does not treat the underlying root cause of Graves' disease - autoimmune dysfunction, which continues to smolder and easily erupts into another autoimmune disease. Anti-thyroid drugs do not treat autoimmune dysfunction either. They provide only temporary relief. Often, symptoms return once you stop these drugs. Surgery also does not treat autoimmune dysfunction. It often leads to hypothyroidism as well as many other complications. Over the last ten years, Dr. Zaidi developed a truly breakthrough approach to get rid of Graves' disease at its roots - autoimmune dysfunction. His patients have benefited tremendously from this approach. Now, its time for you to learn about this ground breaking discovery. Dr. Zaidi reveals what really causes autoimmune dysfunction that ultimately leads to Graves' disease. His revolutionary treatment strategy consists of five components: His unique Diet for Graves' disease (including original recipes), the link between Vitamin D deficiency and Graves' disease, the connection between Graves' disease and Vitamin B12 deficiency, how Stress causes Graves' disease (and Dr. Zaidi's unique strategy to manage stress) and the Judicious use of Anti-Thyroid drugs. Dr. Zaidi also explains: What are thyroid antibodies? What are the tests to diagnose various causes of hyperthyroidism? What causes Graves' eye disease and what is its proper treatment? How do you accurately diagnose and manage Graves' disease during pregnancy?

fearful? You may reply, “Oh! It’s me.” Really? Let’s take a look at this “I”. Can you show me where is it? It’s in your head, isn’t it? It’s an abstraction, an illusion, a phantom. It is a virtual entity in your head that steals your identity. It is not the “true” you at all. Why do I say that? Because you are not born with this. In order to know your “True, Original Self,” observe little babies, just a day or so old. I had the opportunity to be in charge of a well-baby nursery in my early

pregnant patients pretty much the same way as I treat Graves’ disease in non-pregnant patients, with special emphasis on the points already elaborated in this chapter. As already discussed in detail, my treatment strategy consists of: Stress management without medications. Special Diet for Graves’ disease. Vitamin D supplementation. Vitamin B12 supplementation. Judicious use of anti-thyroid drugs. Please refer to Chapter 9 for a detailed description of my strategy to treat Graves’ disease. Let

On my clinical examination, she had a small goiter, mild bilateral exophthalmos and a fine tremor in her hands.

him/her decide which tests to order. Some Primary Care Physicians, especially in the US, may order unnecessary tests for fear of litigation. This “shooting in the dark” approach is not only unnecessary, costly and potentially harmful, but also may put you on the wrong track. Some over-zealous radiologists may interpret more than what they see. Radiologists do not see the patients, but the screen. Therefore, be careful when a radiologist gives a clinical diagnosis, which may be incorrect. This
