Thyroid Foundation of Canada
So many of those seemingly contradictory "facts" available on the Internet are made clear in this extraordinary compilation of authoritative information on Graves' Disease. Because it shares important perspectives on emotional as well as physiological aspects of G.D., it should be required reading for those spouses, family members and health care providers who truly want to understand.
Arliss Beardmore
President Thyroid Foundation of Canada (1997-2000)


Dr. Donnica Moore
While Graves' disease is not well known, several patients are: Former President George H.W. Bush, Mrs. Barbara Bush, and Olympic champion, Gail Devers. Chances are, if you're reading this, you or a loved one has Graves’ disease. I congratulate your decision to educate yourself on this condition which is too often overlooked, under diagnosed, misdiagnosed, and misunderstood. I also congratulate--and thank--the authors for compiling this resource.

I wish I could prescribe Graves' Disease, In Our Own Words for every patient with Graves' disease. . .and their loved ones. Whenever chronic illness is diagnosed, it's scary. Patients and their loved ones naturally seek information, because knowledge is power. Yet it's almost impossible to find one comprehensive source with all the necessary information, in an easy to read format. . .with a real-life "been-there-done-that" perspective from other patients. Co-authors Nancy Patterson, PhD and Jake George of the National Graves' Disease Foundation have provided that.

As a physician, I am pleased that the medical information presented is thorough, comprehensive, and accurate. Even more appealing, however, are the sections addressing the social aspects of Graves' disease: memory problems, family problems, work problems and other emotional issues. The letter from David Bos to spouses of Graves' disease patients is a poignant love letter; it’s a powerful starting point for readers whose loved ones have Graves' disease. As a women's health advocate, I particularly appreciate the sections on Graves' disease and pregnancy, as many women patients are diagnosed by their gynecologists when trying to conceive.
