Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome: A Reversible Thyroid Problem

Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome: A Reversible Thyroid Problem Lowest new price: $70.59
Lowest used price: $9.60
List price: $21.95
Author: E. Denis Wilson MD

Formerly titled, Wilson's Syndrome -- The Miracle of Feeling Well, this book describes a recently discovered reversible thyroid problem.

If you're suffering from symptoms of low thyroid function, and your thyroid blood tests are normal, that may mean that your symptoms are curable! Many patients with symptoms like Fatigue, Depression, Fluid Retention, Easy weight gain, PMS, Headaches, Migraines, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Itchiness, Insomnia, and many others, respond very well to the right kind of thyroid medicine given in the right way, even when their thyroid tests are normal. And more importantly, the symptoms often remain improved even after the treatment’s been discontinued.

This thyroid problem, Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome, is reversible in the same way that certain female hormone problems are reversible. For example, some women with irregular periods can be cycled on birth control pills for several months to regulate their bleeding. Then, when they are weaned off the pill, their periods often remain regular even after the pill’s been discontinued. Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome is a similar reversible hormone imbalance that affects the thyroid system instead of the female hormone system.

This book is an excellent description of the syndrome and its manifestations and introduces the treatment of WTS. It fully explains what it feels like to have WTS so people can get a very good idea of whether or not they think they may be suffering from it.

If people do believe that they may have the condition, the Doctor’s Manual for Wilson’s Thyroid Syndrome explains the treatment protocol in complete detail.

Interpretation of Semen Analysis Results: A Practical Guide

Interpretation of Semen Analysis Results: A Practical Guide Lowest new price: $48.98
Lowest used price: $65.26
List price: $86.00
Author: Rajasingam S. Jeyendran

This practical and concise guide provides a step-by-step approach to every aspect of the interpretation of semen analysis results. While other books focus on basic semen analysis protocol and techniques, few books then go on to actually interpret these results and provide useful guidance on the significance of different results for infertility assessment. This guide takes a systematic, hands-on approach to identification of the ranges of abnormality that contribute to male subfertility. It also defines basic concepts, provides clinically essential reference values, and elucidates the often subtle relationships among many sperm characteristics. Once conclusions are reached, the guide offers recommendations for appropriate referral and additional options. Inclusion of vignettes from a wide range of real-life case reports based on the author's own experiences help to illustrate key points. This practical guide is an invaluable resource for all clinicians, scientists, and laboratory professionals working with infertile patients.

Animal and Human Calorimetry

Animal and Human Calorimetry Lowest new price: $138.85
Lowest used price: $26.52
List price: $182.00
Author: J. A. McLean

This volume provides a comprehensive survey of the theory, practice, and techniques of calorimetry as applied to the study of energy metabolism in humans and animals. Calorimetry is used to estimate nutritional requirements of man and farm livestock and to evaluate different foods. It is also a powerful tool used in research into fundamental nutritional and physiological life processes and in the evaluation of stresses imposed by abnormal or severe environments. It is currently being applied in various branches of medical research and can be used as a diagnostic tool in hospitals for investigation of metabolic disorders. The authors discuss both direct calorimetry, which measures heat loss directly, and indirect calorimetry, where heat loss is inferred by measurement of some of the chemical byproducts of metabolism. In addition, guidance is provided to the instrumentation, technical problems, and precautions necessary to obtain accurate calorimetric measurements.
