They are talking about elderly patinets but in my view it applies equally well to us thyroidies." patients given cocktails of unnecessary drugs. Paternalistic docs too often respond mechanically and fail to consider individual needs". Sounds all too familiar to thyroidies. "NICE is attempting to reverse their behaviour" that will be the day! "Docs should discuss the pros and cons of treatments with patients" we should be so lucky! Sorry to sound so cynical, again!
