      Annette, I would see an endo as opposed to a family doc. The reasoning
      here is an endo specializes in glandular disorders and works with them
      on a daily basis. Would you have your car painted at a lubrication specialist?
      Why not give the endo a call? Think you may be happy you did.

      Regards,
      JAN

        I wish that I had gone to another endo sooner than I had. Let me
        explain. Last year, I was seeing and internist, a really good
        doctor. As a matter of fact, if I didn’t like him so much this
        situation would be easier. I went hypo in January, well, January
        is when I have my anual exam, including a full blood workup.
        In March, we rechecked my tsh. Right around July, I started feeling
        really yucky, I mean REALLY YUCKY! I asked him to check my tsh.
        He said that it was too soon. I asked him again and again, and
        his response was the same. It is too soon.

        This January, I had to change insurance so I was forced to get a
        new internist. Once again, new blood work. I was hypo! GEE BIG

          SURPRISE! My new internist sent me to an endo. I am pretty
          atypical. My new endocrinologist did more than look at the blood
          work, she took a ton of time with me. We talked about her
          phylosophy on target tsh and my general good health. The difference
          was amazing! Ok was doctor no.1 a bad doctor? Of course not,
          he was ill informed. It is not his specialty. From now on, if
          possible I will make sure that I see an endocrinologist at least
          annually! Good luck…Carolyn
