Hashimoto’s Treatment at Kaiser
Open enrollment is quickly approaching and my family is thinking of switching to Kaiser.
I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s (hypothyroid) and I have heard anecdotally that Kaiser’s treatment of Hypo/Hashi is based on blood work and that people have not been able to have their symptoms addressed if their blood work shows minimal disease (as mine does). Obviously if Kaiser does indeed have a limiting treatment protocol that would keep me sick we will not be switching!
Does anyone have experience about having Hashimotos at Kaiser and how their symptoms are/were managed? Any recommendations for an endocrinologist that has knowledge/experience in this area?
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts and experiences!
