Thyroid Information Your Doctor May Not Know

gimel, one of our very knowledgeable, trusted members has joined with 2 others to write a paper about the thyroid process, testing and treatment.  

Although many doctors only go by TSH or insist that they adhere to ATA protocols, this paper explains why TSH (and ATA protocol) is inadequate and why many of us end up being dissatisfied with our treatment.

You can find the article at the following link:

Thanks Barb …. Great article.

I lost my thyroid to cancer almost 5 years ago and still can’t get adequately tested even though my health issues keep piling on … recently diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy (burning skin)so much fun but the neurologist can find no reason for it … Im now forced to purchase my own FT3 test just to see whats going on with me.
