Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows of a private service that will do private thyroid function tests for children please? My kids are 11, 8 and 5 and my two youngest boys are autistic but I also suspect may have thyroid dyfunction. My eldest daughter has symptoms of being hyper and also having hypermobility and the thyroid dysfunction seems to run along the female line of our family. She excessively sweats and always has done, has extra high energy levels, she is double jointed and her body clicks. She cannot concentrate fully. She has got an appointment next week to see the school health team but I am just asking just incase they do not refer her for an intensive enough test. With the two boys it is more just to rule it out as I was obviously hypo during my pregnancies with them. What should I ask to be tested for my daughter to get an overall picture of her thyroid function? There is no way she would do blue horizon kit.
