As quoted in Streitfeld's review, Shomon said she wrote the book because so many of her friends were complaining about their dates, and "there seemed a need for some satire, instead of just moaning or psychobabble.
Shomon's book Living Well with Hypothyroidism: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You—That You Need to Know begins by defining hypothyroidism and naming its symptoms and then discusses finding a doctor, types of treatment, and alternative therapies. Shomon also explores specific symptoms of the disease, such as weight gain and depression, and discusses hypothyroidism within the contexts of pregnancy and infertility and in children and cancer patients. The book contains a list of resources for patients and their families.
A contributor to American Fitness commented that Shomon "provides a comprehensive service to thyroid disease sufferers. In Living Well with Autoimmune Disease, a book written for the estimated fifty million Americans who suffer from some form of autoimmune disease, Shomon follows the same general format as in Living Well with Hypothyroidism, first describing the immune system and its related diseases and their symptoms—ranging from diabetes and chronic fatigue syndrome to schleroderma and Chrohn's disease—and then covering holistic approaches to these diseases, including the use of herbs and dietary and lifestyle changes.
Shomon also discusses finding and working with the right health practitioner and provides lists of resources and experts for further information. The book also features interviews with patients. A Publishers Weekly reviewer wrote, "This informative self-help manual is badly needed.

Shomon told CA: "I have always been interested in writing, starting as a child writing how-to guides for my friends. I started with humor, and when I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem in , turned my attention to researching and writing about my own health conditions. This led me into patient advocacy. If you are located outside the U. A complete guide to understanding the mysterious and often difficult-to-pinpoint disorders of the immune system--and finding the keys to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. An estimated fifty million people suffer from symptoms including fatigue, joint pains, depression, or heart palpitations — signs that the immune system has turned on itself, causing conditions such as thyroid disease, hepatitis, or multiple sclerosis.
And while doctors may prescribe treatments to relieve these surface ailments, when asked about the life-long health implications of an autoimmune condition, they often just shrug their shoulders. Yet much like cancer, having one autoimmune disease puts you at high risk for developing another, and understanding the underlying immune process can reverse a patients approach to a dysfunction--for the author, it changed the way she ate, the vitamins and supplements she took, and the types of doctors she visited.
