I have autoimmune thyroiditis (also grandmother and brother do). My 1 1/2 son has severe constipation and slight failure to thrive.
He had various tests done which included Thyroid Tests. Paediatrician says they were fine. When I pushed for numbers he said TSH was 8.9 and Free T4 17.5. I am not familiar with Free T4 ranges but to me 8.9 is a high TSH. He said this does not indicate Hypothyroid but he will test his antibodies next time we go and it might need monitoring.
Does anyone have experience of ranges for toddlers? Should I take his word or push for a second opinion (so far there is no cause found for either the constipation or the slow growth).
