    Question Endocrinologist in L.A.

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone have a recommendation for an endocrinologist, preferably in the South Bay area of Los Angeles? The west side is fine, too. I am looking for someone who is knowledgeable in osteoporosis (and hyperparathyroidism), versus someone who specializes in diabetes care. And of course, a primal-friendly attitude would be a dream come true!

    Thank you all in advance and happy holidays,
    Bob

    I have a similar request for any in southern California. I'm in Riverside County, work in Orange County, and I'd be willing to drive up to an hour to a primal-friendly doctor who treats type 1 diabetes

    I go to Holtorf Med Group in Torrance. They don't use the term "Primal," but they like to tell patients with insulin resistance to do South Beach, phase 1 (VLC), and they are into natural, bio-identical meds, not "big pharma."

    I don't think they do type 1 diabetes, but they can help you not get type 2.

    I saw them for hypothyroid. They found adrenal fatigue too, and sorted out problems no one else could figure out. It's as close to Primal as you could expect.

    I moved across the US, but I won't switch docs. It took too long to find one that knew what to do. I go back to Torrance once a year and do the rest via local labs.

    Who do you see in Torrance? I noticed on their site that they have a Chris Sterrett MD in Pasadena which is closer to me. Have you heard of him? I will gladly drive the hour to Torrance is you have a doc there you love. I'm treading water with my hypothyroid and my doc won't put me on anything but Synthroid and my T3 has bottomed out.
    Thank you!
