My 11-year old stepdaughter has a goitre (swelling) in the front of her neck by her thyroid. Her endocrinologist in the Philippines has prescribed Tapdin methimazole 20 mg daily which she has taken on and off (not continuously) for 4 months. Her blood tests for FT4 during January to March 2017 were 96, 32, 15 pmol/L (range 9-22). Her neck swelling remains
Her symptoms have been sore throat, difficulty swallowing, high heart beat, difficulty sleeping. These symptoms have mostly stopped recently.
She is having further blood tests tomorrow. What other tests should she have? eg TSH FT3 reverse FT3 etc.
Any comments or suggestions much appreciated.
