Dealing mainly with diagnosis of cancer and the statistics surrounding.

Maybe this is a good approach but would it work? "In order to get the doctor out of the defensive medicine mood - where they protect themselves against you as a patient - it's often good to ask doctors not 'What would you recommend?' but, 'If it were your mother or your brother, what would you do?'" says Gigerenzer.

I have to say I never have bloods done for the GP, I always say I am not on levo and you simply would not understand the results!! My TSH is very suppressed and it works for me I do not want my thyroid meds messed with full stop. I will be the judge if I am on too much or too little not the GP nor the endo...
