Hi all,it's been a while since I've been here. Now let me just start by saying I really can't understand the thyroid,but I do know it's important to the way we feel.
Here's the start of my story,I'll make it as quick as I can.After a heart attack I was put on a drug for about 3mths, that left me with an Underactive thyroid ,as time went on it became a para thyroid.
In October I seen my Endocrinologist but his computer was down,so he said he would send me a letter when he seen my bloods. Well after no end of phone calls emails I finally got my results. At the top of the letter it said Mild Hyperparathyroidism ,now this words getting longer. Sorry forgot to metion it did go to parathyroid first.
I showed it to a friend of mine who said it didn't make sense to her,my results seemed more like HyPOparathyroidism ,so I rang my Endocrinologist secretary to check and she said it was a typing error,and should be Mild HyPOparathyroidism .
I can't understand how they can come to that conclusion with just the average bloods.
I was also given no advise on how I could help myself,plus I suffer chronic IBS!! And I do know the thyroid can have an effect on your Stomack. How can they come to this conclusion ? I've also requested an appointment to be brought forward,so I want to go at least with a bit more knowledge .
I was on the thyroid forum first,but I can't remember the name of the administrator in the past I have spoke with clutter. Any help is Welcolm and appreciated.
Sorry it's such a long post.
