I took my 12 year old son to the pediatritian today and he noticed something that I had been noticing for a while now - sometimes his hands shake. The dr. said it was most likely thyrotoxicosis, and he asked other questions about other symptoms, and J definitely has the heat intolerance. He has always had that - turns beet red in the heat, just can't take the heat well at all, but does not mind the cold at all. He also has difficulty concentrating and has always had that as well and lately has said he is tired a lot. The dr said that at his age it is not likely to show up on a blood test yet or need any treatment, but they will check his blood next year and from then on will test the thyroid every two years and that it usually shows up in the early 20s. He asked if we use iodized salt and said that we should - I use the Real Salt which probably is not iodized, but can switch to the other.
Is there anything I can do w/ vitamins or foods that will help or anything?
