hmm update ...... I got in to see the endo fairly quickly.
Now I know why, it only took a few weeks cause he is awful.
First off he says your on armour hmmmm well I don't like that we will prolly have to change that.
Second, he says your weight is the real issue (I'm thinking no DUH) you have to watch what you eat AND drink no pop or juice. I replied it's not that I quit drinking pop 3 years ago and all I got was a headache. To which he replied well you know tea has more sugar than pop anyway. ( WHAT?? yeah my thought to)
He then says you need to be on an 1800 cal diet and no sweets. Even though he nor his nurse ever asked me about my diet. I would have happily printed and brought my log for here. /sigh
I asked to have the antibody test, he says you don't need them if your not graves your hashi's no in between.....
I asked about my throat which has felt swollen and too full for several weeks now and off and on again for years. he says do you smoke? I proudly reply Nope not for a year. he says well smoking causes stuff like that and it is prolly that and you never realized before ...WHAT ?
I asked about my fatigue ( I find it difficult to stay awake more than 4 hours at a time and have to have naps( good thing my job is seasonal and it's the off season) he says oh thyroid doesn't cause fatigue you prolly have sleep apnea or something similar.
Needless to say I was so mad I could barely see straight.
Sorry for the rant
So I guess I learned nothing form the endo...... except that he knows nothing about thyroid and is tunneled visioned to Diabetes.
