hi there. my labs just came back all funky for thyroid function, and i'd like to visit an endocrinologist. preferably someone willing to work on diet and supplements, in addition to synthetic hormones. does anyone have any recommendations...or suggestions for who to avoid? thanks! :

We've been very happy with Dr. Parker, who is off of Grant, just before Tanque Verde.

He's been watching my grandmother carefully and only just recently suggested testing beyond the general blood tests that she'd been having. He also suggested the low idoine diet and retesting before they took the next step of radioactive testing on the thyroid.

I'm in the process of looking for an endo, too. My hypothyroid has just gone Hashimoto's. Definitely want someone who will work with herbs and supplements.

Not sure if you found someone yet, but I was also very happy with Dr. Parker. The office was quick and efficient, and worked up my thyroid nodule that was found just after my daughter was born.
