Re: What kind of doctor should I go to to have my thyroid checked?
I recommend using the thyroid symptom checklist, then take a copy to the doc so he can see this altogether, then see the primary care doc if you need a referral. If not, go directly to an endocrinologist for thyroid level testing. If it is considered borderline or noraml you may have to learn much more to actually get treated.
Before the med is tried there is no test in existence that can predict if you have the thyroid level you actually need for health.
All anyone can do is try the med, and then it is not a quick result. It can take a year for some symptoms to go away, and then others need other intervention to disappear.
This sis a slow process, so be patient and don't give up.
Perhaps your general doc or assistant will wotrk out for you. I would not go thru a GYN at all. It is too speacialized a field.
Let us know how you are doing! TF
