Yeah that’s crazy. I just don’t understand where docs come up with this garbage. Like, do they get told once that all issues are e2 and just assume that’s a fact for the next 30 years of their career? I don’t understand.
I use Dr. Saya @ Defy and he is good. It usually takes a few weeks to get in with him though, his schedule stays pretty full. There may be others that are good too, not sure. The first nurse I tried there tried to put me on Boron because my SHBG was 160, lol.
The good thing (at least for me) with Defy is I’ve been able to get insurance to pay for all my labs. They send me a prescription pad with the labs written on it and I take it to Labcorp and bill insurance for the tests. So far they’ve paid all of them. That may not work for your situation but it may at least be worth trying at some point.
