I was very confused some years ago, when I got my first thyroid blood test results. They did not mean anything to me- just numbers, which I can easily convert into symptoms.
If you, like me, just left the doctor’s office with a piece of paper in your hand, given by your doctor with the following words “Your tests are abnormal– you may have Graves’ Disease or Hyperthyroidism– you probably have a lot of questions in your head. No more explanations. Doctors don’t have time to explain what are normal, what are abnormal thyroid test levels – just because they have scheduled about 15 to 20 patients per day and they can not afford any extra time for you and your health problems.
Did you have a similar experience? Or may be your doctor was the best- compassionate, understanding and careful. Patients are looking for good doctors. And want to know the bad ones too. If you like, share your experience, it’s much appreciated.
I know that Diet is very important when you have Graves’ Disease or Hyperthyroidism. When I was sick, I tried to avoid foods with high iodine content- like sea food, for example. Even though I like fish, shrimp ect and this is my favorite food. Many people have found that different foods make them feel different..
Do you have any experience about this? What makes you feel good and what makes you feel bad?
