Why can't GP diagnose without a blood test.
Surely they can tell by the patient's modality and if they have a history in the family, like mother or farther. My mum had a thyroid problems all her life. So why can't they take that into consideration? Feeling low and lifelessness and brittle finger nails, sweats and very emotional are all indication of thyroid. But instead they say have some anti-depressant, they dish them out like sweets.
It is about time we studied why there seems to be a very large population with over weight people. Could it be that they are suffering from hyperthyroidism.
