Dear Dr. Braverman,

I forgot to add in my last post that I suspect I may have a mild form of raynaud's disease as my hands & feet are often very cold & some of my fingers can turn completely white when faced with cold conditions for a relatvely long period of time. My doctor had thought this might be subclinical hypothyroidism but could you tell me what immune testing/treatments are recommended for raynaud's?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Braverman

Reynauds can be a symptom by itself (primary) or a symptom of another underlying immune issue (secondary). A full immune workup in addition to the correclty recommended thryoid screen are important. I would be happy to assist you with this. Simply fill out a consultation form and we can schedule a free 10 minute chat.
