SL, I understand how you feel about not being informed.  I found out only last year while reading a book about thyroid that it is usual for a person to require more thyroid supplementation in the winter.  Same reaction as you......why didn't someone tell me this!!  I guess that's just an example of why I keep searching for answers, myself, since no one person is going to come forth and give me all the answers to my health questions.

Yeah, I hear you.  When I first started thyroid med my onco set it up.  Told me nothing about food, walnuts, calcium, or iron and how it can alter or diminish potency.  Nope.  So, I did reading and found that out and told him what I found.  As a matter of fact I brought in the pamphlet from the pharmacy that said much of that.  He said he had no idea!  Are you kidding me?  So I continued to study and research.  I was ok with my endo that I found and thought things were good.  I blamed issues on other things and for the most part it was true.  However, when I saw he did not test Free T3 T4 I was in shock.  He always tested Ferritin and stopped even though he knows mine is always so very low.  I mentioned diet and other things and he said nothing.  I don't have to tell you more, you know the story cause you've lived it.

So NHG, I'll share all that I know if you do.    Seriously, I'm sure you have a lot more answers than I do considering your experience.  I'm brand new for the most part.

What do the dummies of the world do?  I don't mean to sound cruel my my MIL, who I adore, thinks because something says "healthy" on the wrapper it is even though it has a list of 50 chemicals in it.  Sigh.  What do these people do when they are ill?
