.. and she made me feel bad asking about it after I tried to explain why I thought it was a relevant test.  (I told her I suspected selenium deficiency due to elevated rT3, and she looked at me weirdly.)  She asked me if my mind "wanders" often.  I then replied to her saying doctors short on time, as an excuse, often say their patients "ramble" when they just don’t want to listen.  (It would of also helped if I had more than the 3 hours of sleep I got.. hate early morning appointments especially when I don’t have my sleep patterns fixed yet.)

Fortunately she did up my NP Thyroid dose from 90 mcg to 120 mcg.. I was surprised actually that she would do this for me, having TSH of 1.78.   I’ll retest that in like 6 weeks.

She also said that my A1C of 5.2% was too low being a type 2 diabetic.. I told her I am aiming for 4.8%

Jenn:

You’re just going to end up with a response from Dr. Davis saying how ignorant endocrinologists are.

Jen - so this new endocrinologist is  better than a previous one?  I sure hope I never need an endo.

The endocrinologist I met today is in a statewide clinic which is part of set of many other medical clinics, all owned by Hillcrest.

My endo visits are really cheap.  $20 per visit with Medicare.

This endo visit cost you more than $20. I’m very sorry to hear what you went through.

Jenn, how did you get access to the endo’s portal notes?  They are our medical records after all so we should all have the right to  timely review the doctor’s notes about our visits.

Like I said multiple times before: Endocrinologists don’t exist to me!

I do not bother to go and see any of those ignorant human beans. I do not even call them doctors.
