I have THE best DR EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I went to a new Dr. yesterday and he is the BEST. I am now the proud owner of a Synthroid script. Just a quick background...I went to my previous dr. and was told that I was within normal ranges so I was fine....blah blah blah we've all heard that one before. Even though we have 30 symptoms saying we are hypo it doesn't matter the blood test says your fine so your fine. Yeah right... Anyways. I sat in the new dr.s office for over an hour talking over ALL of my sypmtoms and concerns. He said your Freet4 (I brought the blood work results from April 1st testing with me) is within normal ranges but barely. My freet4 was 1.37 and the range was 0.97-3.00(something like that...I let them keep my blood work) Anyways he said any lower and they would of flagged it and treated but because he also treats symptoms and not just blood work he gave me the synthroid. My dose is .50 I go back in July for more bloodwork and a recheck., He said if my Freet4 is too high he'll readjust the dose but if I am doing ok and its not too high I can stay on that dose. I feel so much better!!! I just had to share that if your not happy with your current dr. fire them and get a new one. I did and am now recieving proper medical care!!!

Yeah! Combine a favored past time (SHOPPING) with competent health care! What a win win situation. I am glad things are workingout for you. Keep with us and feel free to share your MDs name. There are no telling how many near you need to meet him!

Glad that you've found a competent Doctor ! There still could be highs and lows that you have to work through along the way , , ,

Being told NORMAL when you feel anything B-U-T plus have a list of CLASSIC hypo symotoms is maddening

GOOD Luck
Sue

Just kidding I hardly ever kick anyone. It is to easy to fall down if you are on one leg.
