I think I have managed my B12 and vit D deficiency well. However, I think my thyroid has not recovered fully after inflammation although it has recovered to a level of 'within lab reference range' unfortunately.
Doctors are useless, no matter how much you explain to them that sometimes its a worth a try to have t4 or t3. But NO!
NHS spends £800,000 every day (every day) on anti depressants. This was in the news just a few days ago. This is beyond me that they have such readiness to prescribe these as if they dont have any side effects at all. Only thyroid medicines have side effects.
I wish all UK doctors become hypothyroid but remain within the lab reference range.
I know this is too harsh to say because there will be some good ones somewhere.
No matter how much you justify your case they will not listen. I have tried my best and don't have the courage to do it anymore. No reason works for them.
Although, I believe, it is a doctor's job to do the research for us but when we are doing it (because they don't have time / willingness/ need) at least then they should be thankful to us that we are making them wiser. But they don't want to be.
I refused anti depressant recently for my pain which has now become chronic (1 year old). I also refused Cognitive Behavior Therapy. This offer made me laugh and annoyed me at the same time. CBT my foot! They will waste money on anything but not give a trial.
I think Jesus was right in saying:
DO NOT CAST YOUR PEARLS BEFORE THE SWINES.
