Author Bio

Zana Carver, PhD

Author of Thyroid Code

Author Zana Carver, PhD


Dr. Zana Carver is a college professor who specializes in teaching Human Anatomy and Physiology.  Author Zana Carver, PhD has research experience in exposure science and pharmacokinetics (how chemicals move within the body).  Zana Carver is the winner of a Columbia Basin College Exceptional Faculty Award in 2018. Pertinently, she also happens to be a thyroid cancer survivor who has had no choice but to learn about all the ways in which thyroid hormone replacement can never truly replace the natural hormonal balance and regulation.

Author Zana Carver, PhD has been disappointed with the long time it takes for good research to be translated into medical “standards of care.” It is, therefore, her mission to find the most helpful and relevant research.  It is also Dr. Carver’s mission to translate and contextualize this research for students, thyroid patients, and the general public. Zana’s site, “Thyroid Code” will never sell anything or charge a fee for information, only clarify the truth and increase thyroid awareness one post at a time.

“I help people understand thyroid disorders so that they can better communicate with their doctors in a way that will improve both their health and quality of life.  Moreover, I enjoy being a nerd and choose to use my education and experience, both academic and as a patient, to help others.”
