I believe he is very good with diabetes but I do not believe he knows about thyroid. if he did he would not have allowed the hospital to give me Levaquin antibiotic as if cancels out your thyroid med. If you don't have a thyroid you will die with out your thyroid meds. Which I almost did. I went into kidney and liver and congestive heart failure for only going in the hospital for pneumonia. He also tells you to take your meds together and it clear says on bottle 1 hour before anything to eat or drink Only water.
