  • Thyroid question

    Made a call to a doctor to send my mother for a full thyroid panel (Free T3, Free T4 etc) and he refuses saying that she doesn't need it because she only has hypothyroidism. How can I make the doctor send her for the test? Anyone has any experience with that? I am pretty sure it will be hard to find a doctor to prescribe Nature Throid.

      Get a new doc. That one's useless. God only knows what else he may've fucked up.
