I'd really appreciate some advice on my eight year old grandaughter's blood test results please. She has been examined by a number of GPs, has a long history of symptoms including tummy pain, diarrhoea straight after eating, tiredness, anxiety, difficultly concentrating. She's been sent away with no diagnosis and the problems continue.
We thought we had a breakthrough when the last Doctor ordered blood tests. The results are through and he has said that they are normal. My daughter asked for a copy and we are trying to work out what they are telling us about my grandaughter's illness. Can you help?
Are these key results?
TSH 1.33 mu/l Range - 0.34 - 5.60
FT4 14.4 pmo/l Range - 7.9 - 13.6
Plasma ALT 43 u/l Range - 7 - 35
For info, we have a strong family history of severe thyroid related conditions, including Hashimotos.
