Hi, I think my daughter who is 11 has hypothyroidism. Her TSH came back at 10.3 mIU/L (0.2 - 4.2) and Free T4 11.2 pmol/L (12 - 22) and GP refuses to treat her because her TSH is only just over 10. She has thyroid antibodies of 805.4 IU/mL (<34)
She has been feeling unwell for quite some time; she is prone to sickness and has had vomiting bugs, diarrhoea and viruses which she seems to pick up from anywhere. I am worried about potential balance issues as well - she fell and injured her tibia bone 6 years ago, causing a massive bone bruise and she fell forward and again injured her tibia bone in the same area as before about 3 weeks ago. Since then she has had tenderness and aching in her bone and I am sure she needs to be seen by a GP though after looking on the internet bone bruises should be given a longer time to heal?
She gets tired very easily, sweats a lot, is uncharacteristically moody sometimes and her work at school is deteriorating. I have been told by her teacher that she caught her sleeping at her desk one day.
Any advice appreciated, thank you.
