I really need someone here to help me. I am so worried and anxious about my 5 year old son. He is small for his age and has a speech issue. I have hashimoto's disease and was recently put on levothyroxine after pestering my doctor for over a year. My TSH was 5 at its highest and has been between 4 and 5 for the last few years, but my symptoms have been debilitating. I am so worried that my son has hashimotos. I can't find any information as to whether or not he could have gotten it from me (in the womb, as out blood mixed during the birth- I am rhesus negative so that is why I know this is the case. He had jaundice after birth).
What I need to know is, could I have passed my antibodies onto him? If so, should I be getting his thyroid tested? So anxious. Please help!
