Next Wed I'm seeing an endocrinologist that I saw privately in December 2015. At that app I told her I suspected that I was hypo due to long list of symptoms that pointed towards hypothyroidism. My GP had requested a full thyroid blood panel but because my TSH was within normal limits lab refused to do all the tests.
The endocrinologist was quite dismissive of my symptoms and informed me that I was obese, needed to lose weight and should exercise more! If I did this then I would lose weight and have more energy. Oh plus I shouldn't waste my money getting a full thyroid blood profile!
Since then I have found this wonderful site and got a full thyroid profile done with Medicheck in Oct 2016 which showed I am positive for Hashi antibodies.
I came away from that app very upset. I am seeing her this time as a public patient and you may wonder why I would return again, well endocrinologists here are few and far between, so limited choice.
Any advice on how to deal with her at this app so that I don't come out feeling like c..p? I have completed the UK thyroid list of symptoms and plan to give her that, plus show her the Medicheck results.
