just something CRAZY the endo said

My endo called the other day to tell me that my latest bloods made me hypert again so back off and only take the 150 instead of 150 and 175. I asked him WHY is it that my thyroid keeps jumping back and forth and not stablizing? His Reply " you can only slice a salami so many ways".
I had my last appt with this doc as I am scheduled to see a new one in may. I think a simple "Idon't know would have been the better answer. I thought I would just share this He should definately go into the bad doc file.

Has this genius bothered testing your thyroid antibodies? Might be why you're fluxuating so much.

Good luck with the new endo!

Testing antibodies wouldn't slice his salami. That would be sucking the juice out of it.. Sorry I found it amusing. Fluxing is natural with or with out antibodies. Antibodies will make it worse with bigger swings. Thyroid hormone production is dependent on your thyroid function, the pituitary call for function (which cycles daily), and presence of iodine and such for making the hormone. Even lazy dogs roll over and go out side to use the potty. Same thing with a present underactive thyroid. Occasionally it will roll over and annoy you. Mine is like my cat. It lays belly up in the middle of the floor and then for no reason what so ever.. flips to its feet and runs up the walls. That is the perfect analogy.. I will have to remember that one. My thyroid is a cat!

If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.

Pit bull that has you by the throat!
I love my cat and he does lay on his back most of the time, but when he is wild he is wild.
