"Endo says I have mental disorder due to ongoing hypothyroid symptoms
TPO ANTIBODY 577.4 (<34)
TG ANTIBODY 601.5 (<115)
TSH 6.4 (0.2 - 4.2)
FREE T4 12.9 (12 - 22)
FREE T3 3.3 (3.1 - 6.8)
Is he correct? Thankyou
Pray – how can a highly paid endocrinologist say that this patient of his has a mental health disorder? It is there in black and white that she is suffering from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
Why can’t this endocrinologist be put in front of the GMC? He has behaved in a negligent manner and has not adhered to the Hippocratic Oath. I am truly appalled and disgusted. This behaviour is continuing. It happened to me in both 1994 and 2006. Thyroid patients continue to suffer needlessly. A psychiatrist would not know what to do with this patient, as happened in my own case (twice).
