Hi everyone, Just had a appointment with a endo, and when he asked how I felt, I started to explain how I feel, but he interupted and said, well your results are Perfect, ( they were just TSH 0.38 reference range 0.30 to 4.20, and ft4 results were 19.7 with reference range 12.0 to 22.0 these were taken in Sept, I said more tests should be done, he said no, then I told him I had taken T3 before when in Turkey and I felt amazing within hours of taking it, so here is the best thing I ever heard, and I directly quote him with this, Well of course, You ARE going to feel better with T3, all my patients who take it says they feel well and when I ask them to stop, they say absolutely No Way", Im looking at him stunned, I then said, so you know I will feel well on this but you are not going to give it to me? yes he said, because, its not the answer, T3 will contribute to you getting osteoporisis and heart problems, so down the line you will have problems, !! I said, but I have problems NOW, should your aim be to make me feel Well, not to stay within a range that the Computer/Lab says is correct even though I dont feel well. I then mentioned NDT, he said, what is that? I couldnt believe it, I said, sorry? I thought you were an Endocrinologist, how can you not know what that is, he said, after I explained it was Natural Dessicated Thyroid, Oh yea, I only know it as Armour. well it gets even more Surreal, I said, Im exhausted all the time, I cant sleep at night and cannot wake up in the day, Im wiped out 2 hours after getting up, I cant exercise, at this he interjected, Well, exercise is not the best way to loose weight, I said I gained 10kg in the past few months, he said well, you could have Sleep Apnoea if your waking up wrecked, I told him I have Sinus issues so of course I would snore. He then suggested that I come back in 3 months after my Sinus op and we will talk about anything EXCEPT Thyroid, I then asked so, what will we talk about then? he said, everything except thyroid, we wont mention the word thyroid, I asked again, so what will we talk about then, he said he didnt know, so I said, ok,. youre an Endocrinologist and you dont want to talk about Thyroid. he then said, so who told you you had Thyroid problems anyway? maybe its not, why is your doctor treating you for thyroid. He obviously didnt read my notes or he would have seen I had a Hemi-thyroidectomy in 2017,. At that I basically just threw my hands in the air and said goodbye. my results in July were FT4 14.4 and TSH was 7.22 with the same ranges as above. anyone any comments on this whole scenario> would like to hear from you all.
ps, just an aside, I stopped taking Omeraprazole for my stomach would that have made the changes in my readings between July and Sept?
thanks so much
