Living with HHT: Understanding and Managing Your Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia
By Sara Palmer, PhD
In this recently published book, psychologist Sara Palmer, who has HHT herself and is an expert in helping people cope with health conditions, draws on current research as she thoroughly describes the symptoms of HHT, explains how the diagnosis is made (and often missed), and details treatment options. While addressing the medical aspects of HHT, Palmer also reveals how people affected by the disorder can maintain their emotional health, take care of family members, and live life as fully as possible.
Enriched with illustrations, personal stories of people living with HHT, a glossary, and contact information for the HHT Centers of Excellence (which provide coordinated medical treatment for people with the disorder), Living with HHT is a complete resource for individuals with HHT and heir families. This guide is also essential for health professionals seeking more information about this underdiagnosed disease.
“A must-read for patients and health care professionals seeking information about HHT, an uncommon disease diagnosis. Families will find answers in this thoroughly researched resource, learn about HHT’s psychological impact, and discover coping strategies for living a long and happy life as they navigate their medical journey.”—Marianne Clancy, Executive Director, Cure HHT.
