Went to my doctor today to get blood work results and to discuss returning symptoms.
(I've had an under active thyroid since I was 9yrs old and hashimoto's for the last 8 years - I'm now 34)...
I mentioned to the Doctor that I think I'm being under treated and she turns and says going on the results I'm actually taking too much (200mcg). I asked if they could reduce the thyroxine and supplement with T3. That was a flat NO.
I then asked when they would stop treating the blood work and treat me as a person... I was told that would not happen and that they will always treat the blood results. I then asked if she was happy that I lived a substandard life as a result. Guess what the answer was.... a resounding Yes!
Why wont these doctors at least try to help????? I'm sooo frustrated!
