Hi. I’m new. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I posted a message in the referrals area looking for electrolysis (and shopping/understanding help): http://www.hairtell.com/ubbthreads/showf…&PHPSESSID=
I would also like to begin HRT soon but am concerned about how to navigate insurance and privacy. I saw a therapist years ago and was diagnosed but didn’t feel it necessary at the time to get any paperwork and I now have no desire at all to revisit therapy. So ideally I’m also looking for an endocrinologist in my area who knows how to file things with discretion so that my insurance will cover the prescriptions.
I am considering telling my GP who has been very good with working with many other things. I don’t know that she suspects I am TG and I don’t know whether she has any other TG patients. Even if she is approachable about the subject, I am not sure whether she would feel comfortable with guiding my HRT and doing blood level checks if she lacks experience (or interest in endocrinology in general). Has anyone had an experience with something like that?
Thanks for any help. The forum has already been very valuable to me.
