Endocrinologist ( he was a new one as the usual were off for christmas - note to self, dont have appointment at christmas next time lol )
Anyway, this is why he was useless
How you going he says, I tell him some things are better and some are worse, explaining each one
Then he says well your test results were all normal. I said Oh were they? They tested my Vitamin D levels for the first time, what were they and he says, oh they were a little low you should get out in the sun more. I said i get plenty of sun so he says oh well you can take over the counter suppliments, I said what dose, he says 1000ui. I said so what were my levels then? He said 13nmol/L ( 5.2ng/ml ) I said and what should they be and he said between 75- 150, so i said well then 13 is really low isnt it lol. I told him as they were testing my levels i did some research and for levels that low the daily dose should be a minimum of 5000ui per day ( 10,000ui per day for 8 weeks is optimal ), and he said no 1000ui is good. !!! @#$%
So then i asked So my cortisol and ACTH were both normal, thats interesting my cortisol has been high and my ACTH went really low, so what were the normal reading then? And he said, your cortisol is good its 962 so said and the range for that? He said 119-618, so i said oh so its still high and he said no its not too bad. ACTH? He says thats 77 with a range of 6.2 - 63. So i said wow its gone from below 1 to 77, thats high, my levels were 76 pre surgery. And he says well its pretty normal. I said i had 95% of my pituitary gland removed and my levels went from below 1 to 77 in a few weeks??? So he says, well we will keep an eye on it. How about we see you in 3 months. Cya get out the door ! lol
It was like he just didnt have time for me ! USELESS ! I was in and out in 5 minutes. Normally my appointments take from 40 minutes to an hour !
