Endocrinologist in Edmonton - Thyroid disorder
Hi. Does anyone has recommendation on an endocrinologist in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada? Is anyone seeing any endo for their thyroid problems and was satisfied with the treatment? I am seeing my family doctor but he is thinking to refer me to endo. Please let me know I can ask my doctor based on your suggestion.

Hi, I developed Hashimoto's after quitting smoking over 7 years ago (go figure, :( ...but not unheard of, so I've learned).  Shortly after, a random visit to an out-of-town doctor clued me into the gluten connection with Hashi's. So, I've been gluten free since then.
One of the challenges has been to find a doctor in the Edmonton area that understands the auto-immune aspect vs just treating it as hypothyroidism.  A trip to a specialist at the U of A was a colossal joke, as even he only looked at my TSH and pushed Synthroid as the solution.
I would be interested to get info on other Edmonton docs, too.  Thanks. :)

Sending you a PM with the only info I have for Edmonton.  To access, just click on your name and then from your personal page, click on messages.  

Just because thyroid test results fall within the so-called "normal" ranges does not mean they are adequate.  The ranges are far too broad to be functional across the entire breadth for many people.  If you will post her test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report we will be glad to give you our opinion.

I've just moved to Edmonton and need to find an endo as I've had thyroid cancer and now also hypo parathyroid as a result of the surgery. I'm registering with a gp here tomorrow morning so would be great to have a good endo name to get referred. At home (Ireland)I attended a specialist endo for thyroid cancer. Any info greatly appreciated

Hello! I'm also desperately searching for a doctor in Edmonton that does not treat based off of just the TSH. My current doctor said that the lab will not test for anything beyond TSH if it shows up within range. My TSH is within "normal" range (2.64 mu/L) but I have an ever expanding list of symptoms that I'm finding it increasingly difficult to deal with and I'm not sure what to do now! Thank you!

We have recently moved to Edmonton. My wife was 17 at the time of the Chernobyl meltdown and she was therefore being monitored by an endocrinologist back in Montreal. We have not had any success in being referred to someone in Edmonton that understands the potential issues. It seems that a referral from outside the province is meaningless. We have seem far too many family physicians; none of which seem to be willing listen, understand and address, let alone refer to a specialist

Symptoms of a potential underactive thyroid have recently developed and our concerns have of course increased.

Hi! Could I also get a list of Doctors who will listen to more than just numbers from a test! I have symptoms like crazy but am so tired of them being completely ignored.  TSH isn't even readable on a test but apparently if I am not losing weight or shaking like crazy then its nothing to worry about. Thanks!

Can you send me the Edmonton doctors name as well? My adult daughter tested positive for thyroid antiboties but other results are "fine" so no treatment will be done. Doctor says there's nothing that can be done, and I fail to believe that with modern western medicine in 2016.

You could go to a bio-identical doctor.  They have an optimal range your thyroid should be in.  I had low thyroid symptoms and my family doctor said my thyroid was normal, despite the fact my hair was falling out, I felt exhausted, colder then everyone else, depressed, and irritable.  The bio-identical doctor said my thyroid was low and put me on desiccated thyroid and I am feeling much better.  They have an optimal range rather then a big range for the thyroid levels. So many people are hypo and family doctors say their blood work is in the  normal range.  If you have thyroid symptoms go see a bio-identical doctor.  There are a few in Edmonton.
