Curious to know if anyone else has a doctor who,and I quote 'treats the numbers not the symptoms'.
I went a whole back feeling lousy and was told this. I've been in slow decline since and a couple of weeks ago when I had my asthma review asked for a thyroid blood. Was told I couldn't have one as it wasn't time for my annual review. I've slowly been getting worse to the point where two days ago I was struggling to get up and make myself something to eat. in desperation I took an extra full dose of levo, (100micrograms) and had none of my usual overdose symptoms.
I'm going back to the doctor this week to have a serious chat about their policy as I have never been stabilised and have been seriously over medicated following this policy. Does anyone know any reason why treating numbers is seen as the correct approach?
