I got a phone call from the surgery saying my doctor wants to see me. This is after I sent him a copy of the blood results from my privately done tests. Could he actually be about to reconsider sending me to an endo for further investigations? I will let you know the outcome next week.
I think one of the major problems with GP's is in their training. I think more and more they are being trained to treat the illness not the patient and they rely on the all knowing, all powerful test results to diagnose and treat patients instead of using the tests combined with their own diagnostic abilities. Unfortunately, for us patients, it seems these abilities are being slowly lost because of the medical establishments reliance on the most basic of test results and drug companies insistance that man made is always better than natural remedies. I think this is just another example of mankinds arrogance. As a species we seem to be getting further and further from the truth that we are after all an animal. If we kept this thought at the back of our mind we would be able to work WITH our bodies own very capable immune systems instead of trying to FORCE our bodies into submission using artificial means.
