For those of you who remember me. I wasn't getting much help from my endo but he did finally allow me to get on NP Thyroid as per PURRBALLS recommendation. I love it!! But my TSH went too low according to my endo who was not willing to cooperate with dosing.
I go to Mayo Clinic every six months for liver related issues and my Mayo doctor tests my thyroid each time I'm there. I had been complaining about my endo making me lower my dose because of my numbers and my Mayo doctor said, "Well, did you feel better on the dose you were on, before?" I said, "Yes!!" He said. "Just goes to show you how meaningless those numbers are! Go back to that dosage! " He gave me the dose I wanted, took over my NP Thyroid prescription and provided me with 11 refills. He trusts me not to take more than I should!
I haven't abused his trust and I must say I like his attitude.:o)
I feel very fortunate. I never got this kind of treatment from an endo. To think I got what I wanted from a liver specialist! Hey, wotever. I'm happy. And I'm feeling good, too! I have good emotional control, now, again, my "number" is .04 but I know it's a good place for me to be. It's so comforting to know there is someone out there who heard me and cares.
I still feel badly for my daughter who is still suffering as she goes to the same endo I did. He looks at her TSH and doesn't hear her, either.
