Just got a print out of childs blood from GP and they look thyroid wise so healthy that I wonder if my cold, constipated, overweight tired child with learning diffs that re getting worse has a thyroid problem.
An endo who specialises in resistance to thyroid alpha offerred to supervise testing and possible treatment but my child pediatrcian decided she just needed to speak to a local endo instead. The local endo has said there is no need for further testing.
The resistance to thyroid alpha often has a low or below range T4 and a high T3. When I read my childs results I was suprised at how high his T3was considering his symptoms and his T4 is a little bit on the low side but not alarmingly so.
Anyway his results are:
T3 5.8 (3.1-6.8)
T4 15.7 (12-22)
I thought his ferritin a bit low at 48.9 (33-400)
She said she would take antibodies but does not appear to have done so.
Any thoughts.I contacted the specialist endo a while back who said that my childs pediatrcian had said she would phone her with results I cant imagine that she has. I also cant find my print off of all the studies done on this condition. I have sacked the pediatrcian and asked that my childs care be now under his GP.
