My 14 year old son will be seen by a paediatrician next week after blood results showed thyroid disease (genetic unfortunately). Will find out more at the appt but am increasingly concerned about how forgetful, confused, dopey and generally spaced out he has become. Fatigue and constipation were his main symptoms which led to blood tests but his declining ability to function effectively particularly at school is worrying. Has anyone else witnessed this in a teenager?
