More Information for CONSULTS with Paul
Paul Robinson is doing limited numbers of private 1-1 CONSULTS for people who need a little extra support to recover from hypothyroidism or low cortisol issues etc.
Paul works with all forms of thyroid hormone, e.g. T4 (Levothyroxine, Synthroid), Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT), T3 and all combinations. The consults are via Skype, Zoom or Facetime and also by email if necessary. Please contact Paul via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more details on charges, how the consult is arranged, bookings etc. Note: Paul lives in the UK but does consults with people in other countries.
INFORMATION THAT MIGHT HELP DURING THE CONSULT
This is all optional but it might be helpful during the consult:
a) Your age and A VERY BRIEF history of how the problem developed from the start to the present day. How was your condition diagnosed? What the pre-treatment thyroid laboratory test results were - TSH, FT4, FT3, rT3, TPO and Tg autoantibodies? How did the treatment progress, what happened etc. ?
b) RECENT test results for serum iron, ferritin, total iron binding capacity, B12, vitamin D, and folate. The serum iron, B12, D, and folate labs must have been done when there has been no recent supplementation with vitamins and minerals (at least two weeks). B12 needs an even longer gap than 2 weeks with no supplementation - often months. Ferritin may be tested while on iron supplements.The units and the reference ranges are also important, as these vary by country and laboratory. A full blood count that includes red blood cell count (RBC), mean cell volume (MCV) and haemoglobin can also help.
c) Recent thyroid lab test results. Ideally, TSH, FT4, FT3, rT3 and autoantibodies TPOaB and TgAb.
d) The CURRENT treatment/medication and dosing/timings you are on.
e) A description of SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS as described in this link: http://recoveringwitht3.com/blog/tracking-symptoms-signs-vitals
Note: you would need an oral thermometer and a home blood pressure meter to do this.
f) CORTISOL: A cortisol saliva test result (4 samples including Dheas) and an 8:00 am morning blood cortisol result. Note: use of HC creams and transdermal progesterone can corrupt saliva samples. An 8:00 ammorning blood cortisol test alone will help if a saliva test cannot be obtained (the blood cortisol test can be between 8:00 and 9:00 am but no later).
g) The supplements that you take over and above the prescription medication, including the dosage.
a - g information is optional. We can do the consult and just talk about this situation if you do not have any or all of this information. However, the more information I have the better my analysis will be.
***** PLEASE do NOT send this information in emails or attachments as Paul simply does not have the time to read these ******
