Patient first, labs second

The next time you visit your doctor, take note of his/her approach.  

Are they first eyeballing your lab results, and just telling you the result?  Or is your doctor starting with you – your symptoms, what’s been working and what not?

If your doctor just look at your labs as the only input to your treatment plan and approach, and ignoring your symptoms (especially if your hypothyroid symptoms persist even if your lab are normal), it might be time to rethink.  

Your thyroid journey deserves a doctor who sees you, not just your labs.
