hanks very much. You know I am close to die when undertreated, and it is no fun, either...
I think you need to search further in canada.
I know people with lyme up there (Canada) need to go to whatever you guys call naturalpath Drs.
With them you pay all the expenses but they are not as pressured by "conventional medicine" treatments- they are allowed to think and treat how they want, not how organized healthcare thinks they should do it.
The times I was very hypo (med shortage) I actually lost weight. The weight=thyroid connection/theory is not all there (hawgwash in my opinion).
I know enough to treat on my own and to great extend do "offer" my input and suggestions to/with my Dr , its a very, very fine line. If I didnt learn and find a dr who listened, I would still be in your shoes.
That said, I cannot and willnot offer dose opinions to anyone - no one should and legally, they cant.
