Just crazy! After seeing an Endocrinologist (for years), the gyno (because of debilitating periods), a naturopath, a holistic MD, a GP, a DO who specializes in chronic infections, a Shaman, and a Chinese Doc, it was a dermatologist who tested for the Hashimotos (I went to her because my eye brows are falling out)…but she didn’t know what to do with the diagnosis….then I happened upon Dr. Kharrazian’s book and here I am trying to figure out what to do next.
So far the gluten-free diet has been much easier than I anticipated…my friends and family are really supportive because they see a huge difference already! And, now when I look at a cookie, or all my other holiday favorites…I just see poison. And, call on the memories of the enjoyment of those things from yesteryear.
Yes Kristie, getting 98% of the healthcare professionals out there to realize it’s our thyroid that’s the problem seems like a huge shell game! I’m so glad you found one, and a dermatologist!
Here is a list of trained practitioners in thyroid health.
It sounds like you’re on the road back to health now, keep going!
