My 11 year old son has been dealing with migraines, random nausea, high resting pulse, fluctuating high BP, and most recently rapid weight gain (56 pounds in 5 months) and has not changed diet! Also insomnia has taken over. The Drs have checked heart, kidneys, and for Cushings- cortisol is normal and major organs are normal.
Blood work is all normal range except insulin is 59 (and rising- bc it was 33 a month ago), tsh is 1.04
TSH0.70 - 4.17 uIU/mL
Free T4is .08.
range of 0.9 - 1.4 ng/dL
The first endo dr told us it was puberty and nothing to worry about and our pediatrician even said "get a new dr"
We see a new dr Aug 18 but this is going on a full year of no diagnosis and worsening symptoms. Mind you, their focus was Cushings and a pheochromocytoma for many months....so now I'm thinking thyroid.
Any ideas? Thanks and God bless.
