My son (4 yr old), at the request of the GP, had a thyroid function test done. The results are:
TSH 1.89mU/L (0.27-4.2)
FT4 14.1pmol/L (12-22)
He had been feeling unwell and very tired. To the extent that he could not walk any distance without complaining (unusual for him as he usually very active). He has been feeling a little better, but still pale/drawn. He also suffers from constipation (not sure if this is relevant).
I myself have primary Hypothyroidism as do my sisters and two cousins (that I know of).
So I'm wondering:
a) Is his FT4 on the low side? GP said that the results were normal.
b) Is there a chance that he will develop hypothyroidism?
My other son has an appointment with the Paediatrician this coming Thursday. He has been suffering regular bouts of sore throats and lethargy since he was at least 4 years old. He had a TFT done about 2-3 years ago which according to the GP were normal (I hoping the Paed can look up these results). He is regularly off sick from school and is constantly pale with rings under his eyes. He too suffered from constipation when smaller.
Anybody else Hypo and have children with similar symptoms?
