I generally skip most endocrinologist as they stick pretty closely to text book synthroid.
Naturapathic Doctors and Chiropractors can Rx natural thyroid in some states, However in most they cannot get you the med you need.
After spending money on way to many intake appointments I got smart. I called the local compounding pharmacies and asked if they ever fill scripts for Armour. Then asked for referrals. It can sometimes be necessary to travel a ways to find a doctor (I know parents who have driven 2 hours one way to obtain their thyroid medication).
I have successfully found thyroid doctor for several parents I have consulted with from all over the country. Remember that often you only need to visit these doctors once per year to maintain your script.
When calling I ask the following questions:
1. Does the doctor ever prescribe natural thyroid?
2. Does the doctor consider both test results and symptoms when determining whether or not to treat the thyroid?
3. Does the doctor feel comfortable treating cases of sub-clinical thyroid in children?
Often the person on the other end will either know right away that the doctor can do this, or they will take your number and call you back.
Once you find a doctor be sure to bring with you a list of your child’s thyroid symptoms and basal temps to your first appointment.
