Re: Seeing a new doc...what questions to ask?
I'm in the process of getting a new doc, as I was horribly treated by my last doc. These are specific to my case, but maybe they'll help?
Here are the questions I'm asking on the phone before I bother making an appointment:
Willing to prescribe Armour or other desiccated thyroid med?
If so, do they understand how to dose?
Willing to test my free t3 and free t4?
Willing to test my adrenals?
Willing to test me for gluten intolerance?
Willing to dose based on symptoms not labs? my hashi swings are dramatic
Willing to take my calls? How long does it take for someone to get back to me? (I ask this because I was ignored by my last doc- I'd call and she would never call me back.)
