Thyroid Bootcamp Houston
TBH was birthed out of pure frustration on the part of both patients and doctors. All too often I hear the patient lament, “I have all the symptoms of low thyroid but they tell me my tests are all normal.” All too often the feeling of total inadequacy on the part of well meaning physicians results in the assumption that it must be depression and therefore antidepressants are prescribed.
This band aid approach MUST STOP. Patients need to take their care into their own hands, become their own health advocates and get involved. But they need to understand at least enough to know what tests should be run, what questions to ask, how to interpret results according to functional (optimal) ranges, not what the local laboratory determines is common.
They need to know where to find good information and get guidance if needed.
