On Doctors and Thyroid Medication…

I called Dr. Hedaya (my holistic endocrinologist) about my new desiccated thyroid dosage, now that the cardiologist has given the go ahead for a higher dosage.  Dr. H has a very good system: he is available at 2:00PM to take calls.  He will now raise my dosage and call the Village Green (Apothecary) to give them the prescription for a compound.  We are very lucky to have this place, as without it I would have to order the natural thyroid from Canada, as I had to do before I started with Dr. H.  This place is  about 10 minutes from us, near NIH, and it is the only one in the area, and I’d venture to say, the only one in the state that does compounds!

Then, I have to wait a few more weeks and have the blood tests again to see how it goes.

For some reason, I feel this will work.  Actually, there is a very good reason for my optimism – the statements of many people and doctors in all the posts and books I have been reading!

So, this may finally be the road to recovery, even if it is slow and after TEN months of feeling miserable with the chemical medication, Synthroid, and a too low dosage of the natural thyroid!!!

About martisima

After over 50 years of teaching literature to undergraduate and graduate students, I feel I have earned my retirement (it happened when I was 72, five years ago). I do miss the classroom, however, but not the meetings and all other requirements of the profession. I love teaching, and wish I could still do it. But now I read for pleasure, and watch films, and listen to all kinds of music (no TV, though). I love to travel, and hope I can resume doing it soon. I need to get over my health issues caused by thyroid surgery three years ago!
