Re: Finally got to see my new doctor. New blood work questions!
No guarantees. Nice doctors can be thyroid-dumb as frequently as grumpy ones.
I can easily see you have Hashimoto's. If you have symptoms, there shouldn't be a "wait and see" plan about it. It will only get worse without treatment.
I hope for your sake that she's as thyroid-savvy as she is nice.
As an aside, I'll say this: My sister is all about "nice" female doctors. She sees one of them herself and switched my invalid mom's care to this MD for various reasons. The MD put mom on a drug that was contraindicated for her health condition, so it caused a bleeding ulcer. Sis didn't blame the "nice" MD at all for prescribing an inappropriate drug, but thought the male gastro doc who had to clean up MD #1's mess wasn't nice enough. I much prefer an MD who's competent over one who's "nice". I can deal with grumpiness, but might not survive ineptitude. JMHO
