It beggars belief. Thousands upon thousands of us are misdiagnosed or non-diagnosed, day after day, by inept Endocrinologists, consultants and GP's. If the government provided us with better clinicians who listen properly, without being dismissive, condescending, patronising and sarcastic, we'd all be correctly diagnosed sooner, would feel better and would not lose years or decades of our lives.
You need to sort out your shite Endocrinologists, Hospital Consultants and GP's - Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg and that stupid House of Cronies - instead of cutting welfare.
When you provide us with astute and considerate doctors, it'll cost the country, DWP and Nhs less, because we won't be feeling like death warmed up with our "curtains drawn" until mid afternoon or later.
Yes, there are "the strivers and the scivers". And YOUR lousy Endocrinologists, Hospital Consultants and GP's are the scivers. And WE are the strivers - striving, year after year (or in my case, decade after decade) to find a GOOD doctor!!! WHY is it so difficult to find a perceptive and considerate doctor in Britain?!!!
While the lab reference ranges are deliberately set wide enough to park your car in, and doctors are instructed not to diagnose/treat until we hit some ridiculously bad lab score (as stated in the video), we meanwhile get progressively worse until our condition becomes chronic - killing off our potential for having a happy and fruitful life, career, relationship, marriage and children. How many relationships and careers have fallen apart because an individual had these undiagnosed/untreated symptoms which their doctors stubbornly ignored?
The damage is knowingly done by these inept doctors. In my case, they continued to ignore my lab reference ranges EVEN when my scores were out of range and out of whack. They did Diddly Squat. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Zero.
Hippocrates did not have/use lab reference ranges to foolishly withhold diagnosis and treatment. These medics talk about their Hippocratic Oath, but Hippocrates would turn in his grave at their stubborn refusal to diagnose and treat us before our illness has become chronic and devastating.
