Dr. Ralf Habermann sent me to the laboratory for blood test. Shortly after the test, Dr. Habermann was so kind to mail to me the results of the test, to inform me that my thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones, and he prescribed to me _____ to add to the thyroid hormones. For this information and instructions, I am very grateful to Dr. Ralf Habermann.
