New to here, in desperation to find some legit info on low thyroid in children. I need reference info on thyroid levels, tsh and t4. We have low thyroid in the family - my great gran, my mum and myself and my son (9yrs old) is complaining of extreme tiredness along with mood changes and behavioural stuff. I've had blood tests done, a month ago his tsh was 1.9 and t4 was 10.7. Blood tests done two days ago show tsh now at 2.15 and t4 10.8. The doctor is saying they are fine and that there is now a new scale that they go by and even if there wasn't, it is fine in the old way of measuring.
Tearing my hair out here, any advice welcome!
