Guide to the Site
This site is not run or monitored by a physician. Its primary purpose is to serve as a place to find the latest published scientific research concerning Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy (HE), aka Steroid Responsive Encephalopathy Associated with Thyroiditis (SREAT). We cannot provide medical advice.
This site also provides descriptions of medical terms and issues designed to help patients better understand HE/SREAT. Please see the links on the right-hand side of the page.
Your comments are vey welcome, but this site is not intended to provide a forum for patient communications. There is, however, a tab (see above) that lists a number of places patients and caregivers can go to find support and to communicate with others. If you are aware of a forum that is not listed here, please feel free to send that information to HESilverLining at yahoo.com.
There is also a tab (above) for Success Stories, where patients who have achieved remission can share the treatment protocols that worked for them. You are urged to consider your personal privacy, and if you share your story do not to post your actual name without carefully considering the implications of putting your personal medical information out for the general public to view. Pseudonyms may be worth considering to safeguard your privacy. This is especially important for parents of pediatric HE patients, who are urged not to put their children’s real names out there, or at least to use only a first name and not a last name. Your child’s privacy in their medical information is important.
To find the most recent, up-to-date listing of case studies and scientific articles on HE/SREAT published around the world, click on the tab (above) marked “Case Studies.” The listing of case studies and articles is being constantly updated to provide you with the very latest research, including numerous articles written between 2010 and 2012. If you are aware of additional scientific publications or case studies not listed here, please send such information via email to HESilverLining at yahoo.com so that we can add them.
