    How was your appointment with Dr. Hupfeld?

    Apr 07, 2022
    For very low metabolism which is NOT hypothyroidism, nor adrenals. He and nice interning Dr. listened very carefully to my long history, looked to match inherited genetics but could not find any family/gene patterns. Explained at length why "endochronolgy"as a specialty has historically been all about thyroid defects, and that my GP seemed to have hypothyroidism well handled. He knows when not to have a patient undergo irrelevant treatment, the letdown being in a courteous way. Some doctors of a "holistic" naturist approach would have had me acupunctured or worse with I am sure no favorable effects.
