159. anti-aging doctor

160. I’ve seen a lot of Drs for my hypothyroidism and I only found ONE dr that listened and actually tried to treat all the symptoms that come with this horrible disease, he took 6 tubes of blood work every time I saw him and he always checked everything and his name is Dr. Modhi Gude out of Oklahoma City Ok and I want ever forget him bc he is a great doctor that listens and cares about his patients…I’ve seen about 100 Drs for this horrible disease and they usually don’t know, don’t care, don’t listen, and misdiagnose all the time…I have to pray every time I go to the dr that they don’t kill me by their lack of knowledge on this thyroid disease!

207. None

208. none

239. I have yet to find a doctor who will listen

240. None.I’ve been to all of these too.

241. Integrative Medicine MD

242. I feel like I’ve done the best job. I’ve seen 4 different endocrinologists, so they were able to confirm my hypothyroidism and give me medicine for it, but I’ve never felt 100% after 3 years – and I’ve had a lot of bad days and suffering as a result. So, while I guess they did the best job since they prescribed me meds and they’ve been the ones handling my care, there’s a reason I’ve seen 4 doctors. I didn’t like the first 3 and I’m only tolerating the fourth. I’ve had to be my own advocate and I feel like I know more than they do. It’s hell. I’d like them to have this disease and see what it feels like! Thanks for doing this survey!

I have taken T3 & T4 and it worked well for awhile and as my doctor explained if you don’t convert T4 to T3 after a while you don’t feel well. I always pay out of pocket for my doctors, so i do get doctors who listen. Thats not the problem. Finding a doctor who understands T3 only is almost non-existent. Dr Olarsch, Plymouth, NH does.
