Endocrinologist is well equipped to treat thyroid disorders

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Regarding the thyroid disorders and its relation with brain fog, I like to state that there is high chance for both disorders at same time. In other words both of disorders predispose for another disorder.

Regarding treatment both disorder should be treated at same time as per the protocol and patient needs and no specific changes are required in most patients.

Regarding your add on question in my opinion both are well equipped to treat thyroid disorders and I do not think one is superior to another or vise versa.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
