Re: Starting Fresh - looking at thyroid removal

Hi fed up,
Endo's are not always the best people for thyroid. If you have one who is not willing to test one of the most important hormones (FT3)which is the hormone available for your cells to use after conversion from T4.
Sometimes it is better to have a doc who has spent years dealing with thyroid or a naturopath who prescribes natural dessicated.
My doc is a general GP who just got tired of the mistreatment of his patients by specialists, and educated himself further and takes a more holistic approach. When my meds weren't working he tested adrenals and also RT3, both were causing issues and now they are being treated.

Maybe research good thyroid docs or look at Mary shomons thyroid info site for recommended thyroid docs in your area. It sounds like you need to!
