“Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy”
HESA published the first-ever book devoted to Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy, also known as SREAT (Steroid Responsive Encephalopathy Associated with Thyroiditis). The title of the book is “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy: A Guide for Patients, Families, and Caregivers – Featuring the Stories of HE Patients from Around the World.”
The book provides medical information about HE/SREAT, a list of almost 100 recently published scientific papers and case studies concerning HE/SREAT, and first-person narratives submitted by 48 HE/SREAT patients and their loved ones. These patient narratives come from around the world and tell of their own experiences, including their symptoms, the search for a diagnosis, and of course, the treatments they have tried and their responses to various treatments.
Stories run the gamut from those of young children whose parents faced the desperate struggle to save their children’s lives, to those of elderly persons mistakenly believed to be suffering from age-related dementia. There are success stories that bring hope for the future, as well as tragic stories of those who lost their battle with HE/SREAT.
“Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy: A Guide for Patients, Families, and Caregivers – Featuring the Stories of HE Patients from Around the World” is available for purchase online at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. The book may be purchased in soft cover as well as for Kindle and other e-reader devices which support Kindle books.
