Doctor from Heaven!!!
I haven't posted in a while, but I had been having Hypo symptoms for a while now and have been to a couple of Dr's. Both have said that my thyroid was fine, TSH levels at 4.04 and 3.23, and that my symptoms were due to depression and ADD.

Well I went to a new Dr. today and she said that both those #'s were high and that she likes to see TSH between 1 & 2, but that she usually goes more by symptoms. She's Hypo herself and feels best when her TSH is around .01, which she said was actually Hyper, but that's when she feels best. She went ahead and did some more bloodwork including Free T4 & T3 and antibodies plus some other tests.

Also, based on my previous lab tests she called me in a Rx to a local pharmacy for Armor so I could pick it up today and start on it tomorrow. She said that a lot of the pharmacies around here tend not to have Armor in stock and have to order it. I go back in 6wks for a follow up.

So if anybody needs a good Thyroid dr in the St. Louis area I've got one for you. :)

Re: Doctor from Heaven!!!
Sounds like a dream, lkitty! I'm in St. Louis and am currently happy with my thyroid treater; but I would like the name of your MD just in case I ever need to switch. Would you mind sharing? Just the name is allowed by board rules ... no contact info.
