Need an Endocrinologist who will treat Hashimoto's


Can anyone inbox me the name of an endo who's open minded to treating Hashi's even though my TSH is 'normal'? My T4/T3 are both on the border of range and I've been suffering varying symptoms for 2 years now and am gradually becoming more and more tired, ( stayed up till 11.30 last night and feel dead today)! My endo has advised watchful waiting but waiting for what? for my thyroid to be completely destroyed???

How long are you supposed to watchful wait for? I wish I could wave a wand so that these endos and GPs could see what it's like to live a half life. I physically cannot stay up past 9pm, but i cannot complain as until i started managing my own health i was in bed by 8pm

Good luck


I have no idea how long - he suggested a retest in 6 months. Also what are we waiting for? For my thyroid to destroy its self completely so I end up very ill and have to have it removed?? That seems like a sensible approach!

I often go to bed at 9pm but def by ten, I've had to go to bed later this week and am exhausted as a result, I just thought I was getting older and becoming more knackered!
