Following are a few book suggestions that have been well-received by both doctors and patients. Please note that while books can provide excellent background information on thyroid dysfunction, they might not reflect the latest medical guidelines and best practices issued by medical associations like the American Thyroid Association (ATA) and European Thyroid Association (ETA). In particular, the ATA guidelines for the diagnosis and management of hyperthyroidism were updated in 2016 and the guidelines around pregnancy and thyroid dysfunction were updated in 2017.
