Are you struggling to work with your thyroid doctor? Do you know what treatments you SHOULD be receiving but you are having trouble getting your doctor to agree? If so, then this is the video for you.

I will be talking about the 5 tips that you can use to help you work with your thyroid doctor and not against you on your thyroid.

These strategies will be particularly useful for people who are using a primary care physician or an endocrinologist as these doctors tend to be about 17 years behind the current scientific research.

5 ways to get your thyroid doctor to work WITH you:

#1. Speak their language!

The first and most important step is to SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE! This doesn’t mean speaking their native tongue but using MEDICAL research to get your point across.

All of my blog posts have links to research and medical papers that you can print out and take to your doctor to help support your case. See each blog post for more information.

#2. Have the right expectations.

You should have the right expectations when you go in to see your doctor. It may not be realistic for your doctor to completely change up your medication regimen but you can take baby steps in the right direction.

#3. Be polite but firm.

Make sure that you are not overly aggressive or confrontational as your doctor will not respond well to this type of behavior. But make sure that you are FIRM in saying what you want to say.

#4. Be prepared.

You need to be prepared for opposition and SOME push back before you go in! If you don’t then you may end up leaving frustrated and not able to say what you wanted to say. PREPARE before you go in.

#5. Don’t settle (but do try to work with him/her).

LASTLY, make sure that you do NOT settle. If your doctor is unwilling to work with you and its been 6+ months then it’s time to move onto another doctor. Remember, this is your health and your life. Don’t let doctors determine how YOU are going to feel for the next 20 years. Take matters into your own hands.
