I spoke on the phone to one of my doctor s today and he asked why I wanted a phone consultation,I had to tell him that it was at the request of the surgery.he went on to tell me all my blood results where ok(i can't remember the word he used) I pointed out that they weren't some weren't even optimal for Thyroid health and reminded him my TPOAB had come back at 50 the range is 00-36.he then asked how I'd even gotten that test done and went on to ask what I wanted done,when I suggested a trial of levothyroxin or ndc he said he didn't think they treat people with my levels( I knew this but it couldn't hurt to ask) so I asked to see a endocrinologist.he said he'd get back to me I went on to tell him I have hypertension high cholesterol a rare unusual heart defect (according to another doctor) resulting in lots of extra ectopic beats and I thought it best to treat the cause of all my health problems and not just give me medication for some of them while ignoring the main problem. This would only result in my health deteriorating in the long run. I pointed out that every cell in the body is affected by the thyroid.a couple of hours later I got another phone call the Dr had instructed the receptionist to book me in for a face to face appointment as soon as possible.I see the Dr on Monday. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I need to ask or tell the Dr on Monday please
