Integrated Doctors?

  1. Integrated Doctors?


    Hey guys,

    Have any of you had any experience with them before? this is probably a broad question, but I do not know what to do... I have been physically and mentally "unwell" for a few years now, never been able to isolate what the problem was, been to so many GP's but the bloods always turn up fine.

    My mum has hashimotos thyroid disease and been seeing our local GP for it for awhile, but never really got it under control, recently she has decided to go see an integrated DR and the guy was appalled and explained how many normal GPs and general specialists (we have been to a so called specialist centre and they were just as useless as the gp's) will not check T3 and T4 and often miss key information.

    It is very expensive to see this guy 280 bucks for the hour, that is AUD so a bit less for you americans haha. I don't know what I want from this thread, maybe just some stories of Integrated DRs helping you out where General practitioners couldnt? I am just so over hearing "Why don't know what is going on"

    Some of my symptoms;
    Anxiety
    Depression
    Stomach Pain
    Fatigue
    Brain Fog
    Memory Loss
    Obsessiveness
    Joint Pain
    Food Sensitivity - especially fatty foods absolutely destroys my stomach
    bloating
    head aches
    Low blood pressure
    Eye sight issues- comes at goes, sometimes feels like something is being pulled over the sides of my eyes blurring it a bit, but then it goes away
    Excessive weight loss- I have lost 12kgs in the past 6-8 weeks without changing anything, i feel like a bit is muscle too
    Extreme hunger
    No appetite
    heart burn/indigestion


    I have seen someone to talk about my issues and stuff like that, doesn't help... tried self help books, activities all that kind of stuff, but i am always just so tired.


  2. Not completely familiar with how the Australian system works, but are you close to a larger hospital or research institution? You might have better luck with a physician there or even be able to get referred to a specialist. Also, have you tried talking to a psychiatrist or neurologist. Some of your physical symptoms might be tied in with your mental ones. It's also possible that they've not, but were for me.

    Yeah will definitely look into the above, I ended up getting a hair test and organizing an endoscopy, I am just so tired of being told they don't know what is wrong.

    If they just keep running a generic blood test, it's not going to be enough. Hoping you get the help you need!

    Hey man, just curious if you know how to interpret my results I posted above, I have booked an appointment with the DR but always curious to hear what other peoples say/opinions...

    If you are unsure could you possibly tag anyone who might know? I am a very impatient man haha, just like knowing things before I suppose i need to lol
