Any good easy read research paper on Hashimoto for my GP?

I have a very enthusiastic young trainee GP who is keen to understand Hashimoto and she is writing to local endocrine to get info. However, I would love to be able to offer her some latest info via research. Can anyone guide me to some so I can print off and take to her for my appointment next week? Thank you

This is not a research paper re Hashimoto . But I think an invaluable read for all things hypothyroidism. Written by a GP

A useful resume is to be found on:

mayoclinic.org/diseases-con...

This is more practical but does include diagnosis/treatment parameters.

Murray I might have replied to you in another thread here. I suggest you read these 2 books, they cover many thyroid issues including Hashi.

Amazon.com search: Iodine Crises. Both Farrow and Brownstein. Both!! Having read both, and spent many years in the thyroid / iodine space for self reasons, I can say you will be glad you read both. There's an iodine face book group: Iodine Crisis but you need to read both of these books as FB group entrance criteria.

Thank you. Will definitely get them and read them.

But don't be tempted to take iodine unless tested and found to be deficient. Iodine is anti-thyroid and was used to treat hyperthyroidism, and when you have Hashi's it's not recommended.
