      At the doctor’s office yesterday there was a large sign stating that Medicare will no longer pay for thyroid tests. Hope I get “fixed” before I start on a “fixed” income.

        I don’t know why but I have been posting
        a lot lately. I use to just
        sit in the back seat and be a passenger.

        Anyway, what do you think it would take to get thyroid testing
        made mandatory for all physicals? How do we get the moles to build a mountain??

        Part of it involves educating people to recognize the symptoms
        and for taking the initiative to ask for the tests. The second
        half I am not sure. Would it have to go to insurance companies
        for approval of their clients? Would the government have to pass a law?
        (just like the recent approval for mammograms and diabetes testing in those over 40)
        Also I hads a recent discussion with someone who had mentioned about those people
        in the inner cities. They stated that there is a large population that have thyroid problems
        but don’t take their meds regularly, don’t get their eyes checked. I am sure there
        are other diseases too that the non-caring attitude sets in also.

        Well thanks for listening to my concerns again!
