Thyroid Specialist in Edmonton AB

About 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and got treated for it with Radioactive Iodine Therapy.  I have been on Synthroid since (roughly for 8 years now).  Dosage is around 100-125mcg / day depending on my blood test results.   Recently I got pregnant and had a miscarriage at 7 weeks.  I know it has got to be my thyroid since during pregnancy, my symptoms worsened (fatigue, weight gain, lack of focus).  

I am on the lookout for the best Thyroid specialist in Edmonton who can look after me and manage this condition better.  I really want to have a child.  I also was never tested for Hashimoto's or vitamin deficiency so anyone can point me to the right doctor please.  I really appreciate it.  I prefer Edmonton as that's the closest to me but at this point, I'd take whatever you got.  Thanks.

I do not know of any doctor but can offer encouragement.  I also have a thyroid disorder now 58 and was sick all the time when I was pregnant at 29, hyperthyroid.  I delivered at 37 weeks a premature baby who almost died at birth.  She is now grown and healthy.  I only had 1 child but do not regret it keep trying.  You need a strong support system around you with loving family and friends.  Something that I did not have.  The best of luck to you.
Thank you for the encouragement! That means a lot.
