My dad is 80+. pace maker, CHF, Diabetic, and is now taking thyroid medication because doctor told him not to eat salt. Thyroid was up .4 points. He was doing ok, now the thyroid medication is causing his heart to pound,fluid gain, and causing problems. Heart Dr. will not call him back, but nurse did. He is scheduled to go tomorrow and see another heart doctor that is in the same office. Nurse said it was CHF. Well yea we know he has that problem. Mom is on top of his medication and his health. Anyone got a suggestion?

What other suggestions are you looking for? Medical professionals rarely reply to posts. Most of us are lay people. It sounds to me like your father is getting the proper care. Any concerns should be discussed with his doctor(s).
