Hi again. Seen go today.i went in to asking for pa testing due to b12 was low normal and folate and vit d..
As having hashi i asked before going in b12 can we test for pa and explained symtoms and gave him facts figures and.levels and proved i was low and reasons etc..
Hes answer after a yeated discussion was there is no evidence anywhere in your bloods to sugest pa...
And hes not testing for it but hapoy to give me vit b12 tabs and see if it helps .. if not then mabe he will check or my endo can wyen i see him in 118days time lol . I said..u said i didnt have hi antibodies for hashi and you was wrong.. he just ouaghed and said your antibodies are not very high anyway.. so i think ive taking him to hes level ..i did thro a lot proof at him..and he didnt like.it.. so now do i take the tabs and see what happens?? Or save up to try and get medicheck testing done which i cant aford just yet??
Oh for the love of..... Challenging a doctor's ego is never going to end well. Although I can understand he probably thinks youve become a hypochondriac at this stage and doesn't want to give in to every test
Do you have neurological signs of b12 deficiency?
If you have PA, vit b12 tablets will do very little regardless as you won't absorb it properly through stomach and intestines .....
Injeciton or oral spray /sublingual treatment will be much better.
If your symptoms are mild and you are just wanting to rule out PA then you may want to hang on until the endo sees you. Although there's no guarantee he will test you either
If your appointment is 4 months away- you could try sublingual /oral spray b12 for 2-3 weeks and see if your symptoms do indeed improve. If they do you may want to come off for 3 months before seeing endo and then get tested.
Sorry??? No one challenged him the conversation was good. In the end he said im not having a pa test .. yes i have some symtoms... As well as symtoms from thyroid as we all know some are similar..my dad is on b12 injections i have hi antibodies low vitamins .. i said before we start to get the vitamins back up .due to problems with high thyroid antibodies and pa connection can we rule it out. And i showed him plenty of info to view and recommended levels..
Lol sorry you misunderstood me- I just re-read what I wrote. It wasn't a criticism at you (!)
The first sentence was directed @your doctors response. I get so exasperated at the way they brush us off. And if they ever feel like they're being challenged they alwsys dig their heels in.
His response to when you showed him up about the antibodies made me laugh.
Hi saya .ive just gone over my questions and noticed i never replied to you lol.. thats ok lol yes he was a bit surprised at the antibodies... Ive just seen a nurse practitioner and she seems much better . She even asked what my t3 was like .. shes also sending me for a scan . So i might stick with her and see what shes like
Ahh glad you're getting better care 👍
Hi there well i hope so 😁😁😁. Fingers crossed
