Do doctors really understand thyroid levels? My doctor takes
a blood test and tells me it is OK if it falls within the 'OK' range!
Well, it might be 'OK' for their charts, but it certainly isn't for
me. The problem is that so many Doctors (and I am talking
about every single known illness to man and woman) has
a guide chart for the seriousness of that particular illness.
It really is a case of 'Jack of all trades and master of none.'
If in doubt, tell your doctor that you are completely miserable,
you keep eating chocolate, (only kidding) you feel fat, or you
feel thin, you feel tired, undesireable, don't like hot weather,
your hands shake and you have no energy. If you go on like
this, your husband is going to run off with the office tart. Oh,
crying to your GP also helps. No, seriously, they hate that and
they certainly can't handle it. The bottom line is your doctor
does not understand thyroid related problems
. The text book
he or she was given is outdated and certainly does not come up
with any answers you want to hear. So guys and gals, just put the
emotions up a couple of notches and try to get the outcome you
want. I know a lot of you are frustrated and dissapointed. Am I
right? Your thoughts are always welcome. Good luck. Sammi X
