Re: Could I be Hyperthyroid? Confusing labs.

It's not nice to be critical of the health systems in other parts of the world, given how 'broken' the one in the US is (and how it's in imminent danger of failing altogether).
But from everything I've read about thyroid care in the UK... There is a serious backwardness about these particular disorders. It makes me sad how little power a thyroid patient has there... How arbitrary the official guidelines are. I wish I knew something about the methods a UK citizen can use to get what they need from their health system they have so I could advise you about finding better treatment. I would be tempted to gather all my friends and family to stage a sit-in at the endo's office until he concedes to act!

Hugs and empathy from across the pond...
