Was just reading a health magazine and they had interviewed very respectful endo. He supported all type of treatments for hypothyroidism. He said like it is ,that there is a group of patients benefitting T3 mono, but was honest and said it is minority. Which is true. But the best thing is that he admitted it! He said these patients must be found and treated.
He also supported NDT and all combination therapies. Yay!
He talked about patients and support groups in very positive way ,and said that support groups helps patients to figure out what could be wrong as many doctors are just clueless. He said that many doctors still believe that thyroid issued are piece of cake and the easiest illness to treat.
He admitted it isn't so and covered up all possible causes why one might fall ill.
I was jumping for joy. You have to understand how small country Finland is. One doctor, like him, can make a huge difference.
The article was very well written , not going over board and simple text.
Now it will be interesting to see what our head of endo's will say about it. As she called T3 doping and forbid any doctor to prescribe it! She has also written the directions of treatment of hashimoto. It is not a disease and does not require treatment. She is quite young woman and these endos coming out of the closet are old men. Quite interesting.
I wonder what kind of battle this will be! as she had called T3 as doping. Because of her many patients had to go back T4 mono and start to look for anyone prescribing T3 which has been very very difficult.
I hope more doctors will start to think about their patients wellbeing and stop this nonsense here and now!
