I’m so upset after today’s endocrinologist appointment. So this was me going to yet another endo to try and get to the bottom of all my symptoms and my blood test results. She thinks I’m hyperthyroid as opposed to hypothyroid (despite all my symptoms, which she actually says doesn’t look thyroid related to her) which she is obviously basing on my suppressed TSH levels and stated straight to my face that positive TPO anti-bodies are irrelevant and don’t indicate Hashimotos. I would accept that if she had been able to tell me what that test is for if not to determine an autoimmune thyroiditis of some kind. She also told me that my hair loss (fists full every day) is symptomatic of the aging process. I am 34!! She wants to ‘start with the basics’ again and do blood tests....of which she isn’t doing b12 or folate (which I know are low and warrant treating) because she says it’s not her arena. I literally cried my eyes out during the appointment and asked her to consider this wasn’t a ‘hyper’ issue and to look at testing mercury toxicity from my leaking amalgams, Thyroid Hormone Resistance and Secondary Hypothyroidsim as possibilities.....she was pleasant enough but she was basically like ‘that’s not going to happen’. She will however be testing TGab. I will update in a week or so when I have the new blood test results.
Am I crazy to be upset? Do any of you think my existing results (see my profile) in relation to my symptoms possibly indicate Graves or Hyperthyroid?
