Thyroid Test Results

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.
