Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy

Press Release: HESA Publishes Follow-up to Groundbreaking First Book

WOODSTOCK, IL, May 05, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy SREAT Alliance proudly announces the highly anticipated Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy 2016 Edition: An Expanded and Updated Guide For Patients, Families, and Caregivers.” This new and expanded second edition includes interviews with the top neurologists in autoimmune neurology from around the world. This edition also brings to light the daily struggles of patients stricken with “Hashimoto’s encephalopathy” (also known as Steroid-Responsive Encephalopathy Associated with Thyroiditis).

The book features a foreword written by Dr. Sarosh R. Irani, the world-renowned consultant neurologist, and clinician-scientist, specializing in autoantibody-mediated diseases of the central nervous system. Dr. Irani has said of the book, “Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy draws on the experiences and knowledge of patients diagnosed with HE, as well as insights from caregivers and clinicians. It offers guidance for future and current HE sufferers who are coming to terms with their illnesses. This balanced and extensive text was written with great care, as a resource guide for this heterogeneous condition.”

The book also prominently features interviews with twelve clinicians who work directly with patients affected by autoimmune encephalitis and the resulting neurological deficits presented by the condition. In addition to the invaluable insights of these clinicians, the follow-up book continues to focus on patient, family, and caregiver narratives which remain the core of the book. The book is rounded out with additional text describing the condition, a chapter offering support for those who have received a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s encephalopathy/SREAT and providing suggestions for how to move forward, and finally, a robust resource section with an extensive glossary.

“Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy 2016 Edition: An Expanded and Updated Guide For Patients, Families, and Caregivers” is currently available in softcover and will be released in the Kindle digital book format in May of 2017.
