I mentioned a few weeks ago my fears that my 15 year old daughter is going down the same path 're health as me it would seem. I won't go into every detail again but she suffered weight gain as soon as she hit puberty and has had almost three years of irregular and immensely heavy periods, doctors gave her transmeric acid to help blood clot but I asked for her to have thyroid checked, they also checked for pcos. Anyway she had a TSH of 1.8 and t4 at bottom of healthy range so no help offered surprise surprise, also her sex hormone result was 18 which was the very lowest number in healthy range. Again, told all was ok. Yeah right. She has constipation,dry skin half eyebrows etc and I have worries 're the hypothyroid issue. Anyway I have started three weeks ago to give her all of the same vits and minerals as I take, (her iron / ferrous sulphate was at bottom of scale too) so she takes ferrous sulphate, selenium, b12, General multivitamin, pro biotic, vitamin c, and vitamin d, anyway she had a period last weekend (42 days after previous) and all she has done is spotted, this is the first time ever. Is this a good thing, or have we gone too far the other way ? Obviously I daren't self treat 're thyroid meds but thought this would be a start for now.
