Hi all, saw the endocrinologist today. Had to drive for 3 hours and then wait for almost 3 more hours to see her. Had completed the Thyroid UK signs and symptoms form which indicated that I have more than three quarters of the symptoms. Also brought my Medicheck blood results done Oct 2016 that indicates that I have Hashi.
She looked at blood results and said ' Good news, all your bloods are normal' I said what about the auto immune thyroiditis? She said no treatment required for that, the American Endocrinoloy association guidelines state no treatment required when bloods in range and yours are. Refused to discuss further and said I'm discharging you today! To which I replied, good, because I wasn't planning on coming back to see you again and was going to ask for a discharge anyway! She was so condescending and smug, I felt like slapping her, she spent a total of 3 minutes with me. So now have to consider what my next plan of action will be. Possibly self treating? Will have to gather my energy at weekend and have a think. Thanks to all for your wonderful support and advice prior to my app. Anna.
