About Me

Barbara Lougheed for webI am a 58-year-old female left hypothyroid after radioactive iodine treatment for Graves’ hyperthyroidism.  Read my medical autobiography online, or a longer, 30-page version with 95 references in my Tired Thyroid book.

My goal is to educate people about the fallacies that exist about thyroid treatments.  (They told you WHAT?!)  I discuss the pitfalls of using TSH as a dosing guideline in five detailed case studies.  Medical research studies support my statements, and my book has over 900 references.  This is not your typical thyroid book, with the same information you’ve already seen repackaged.  I encourage you to take a look.  Use amazon’s “Look Inside” feature in the link above to see the Table of Contents and to read parts of some chapters.  Or click on the “preview” button below to read the Introduction and beginning of the book.
