Hi, I have a question to ask just to get someones opinion. The last time I saw my doctor with the nurse in the room the subject somehow came out about talking about thyroid concerns. My doctor is actually a oncologist/general surgeon though. While we were on the topic of talking about thyroid matters I was thinking of the information I have regarding thyroid matters and I was thinking I'd give a copy to my doctor. I just want to know as a nice gesture do you think it's okay that I give a copy of the information I have regarding thyroid information to my doctor? It's a really interesting and useful article I have which I got it from my doctor awhile back. Just a small thing I thought I'd give my doctor and I just wanted to get your opinion if you think it's okay?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

I think it would be okay, but it depends on what type of relationship you have with your doctor.  If you have the typical patient/doctor relationship, then it might be slightly odd that you are sharing information regarding the thyroid and you aren't currently experiencing any thyroid concerns.

Doctors have access to the latest medical information in forms of subscriptions, etc. so it might be something that he/she has knowledge of especially if it affects their particular area of concentration.

I think it would be okay, but I would lower any expecations on getting a response.  Again, if your relationship with your doctor is closer than the average patient, then you will instinctively know what's best.

Also, if this article is online, please share it with the EmpowHER community.  

Hope this helps.

Be well,
