Endocrinologist

I have been on these boards with so many things wrong, reading a lot about thyroid and adrenal gland disfunctions, I am thinking of seeing an Endocrinologist. I pose a lot of the symptoms they talk about in regards to adrenal gland disfunction. Has anyone seen a Endocrinologist before and would you recommend this? THANKS!!!!

Re: Endocrinologist

yes, endocrinologists are the kind of doctor to see if you suspect you have a thyroid/adrenal problem, however, as you will quickly see here, many of us do not have warm feelings for endo's. it is often hard to find a good one, so i am hard-pressed to actually suggest you go see one.

if you have a good GP, you could talk to her about discussing your symptoms and ordering the basic blood tests.

you would save yourself a lot of frustration if you study the postings on this board, and go to your library to pick up some books on thyroid/adrenal problems.

osteopaths have gotten good reviews here in regards to taking a very good approach in treatment and listening to the patient more closely. that could be another option for you.

Re: Endocrinologist

Find a Good GP, Osteopath, Internist or Endo in your area.......ask around.
I really like my Endo but went to 2 Endo's before him and they were not as good as my GP Family Doctor...... Good Luck
