Thank you LaurieG. She does have constipation (why we were at the ped gi) and she has not grown in height or weight since May, so she does have some symptoms that would fit with hypothyroidism. I will be having more testing done through our doc.
|If you have any specific questions let me know - this is one thing I actually have a bit of knowledge on. Generally I feel like I'm always asking the questions.
You're dd is old enough now that brain development isn't such a big concern so hopefully that eases any anxiety you might have.
OP - I hope you don't mind me sticking my head in here to post in your thread!
Laurie, since you offered...
My 8 yr old dd has a TSH of 3.41 and is already over 100 lbs. even though she eats really healthy food and gets plenty of exercise. I am worried about early puberty. MD says that's a normal TSH and won't consider thyroid supplementation even though her mother (me), her grandmother and both aunts all have thyroid disorders.
TSH = 3.41 (.3 - 5.5)
T4 = 1.18 (.9 - 1.8)
T3 total = 227 (70 - 170)
