This may be one of the stronger messages I have ever posted, but here goes: I think you should , first of all, go to a real endocrinologist as fast as possible. Secondly, retype that post, just like it is, and send a copy of it to the local endocrine group. I don’t know of any major city that does not have a group of specialists that meet about once a month to review literature, talk about problems, etc. You don’t have to name names, but bring it to their attention that the physicians who represent their speciality are seriously lacking in some areas. I have been reading your posts for months, and I know you to be reasonable, articulate, and stable. If you want me to help, I will be glad to do so.
