Went to GP with toddler as she is a terrible sleeper, constipated, bloated, very cranky/tired/angry, constant rash on chin/face and little hair growth. GP subscribed laxatives, multivitamins and steroid cream for the rash but also said yes to a blood test. (After twisting his arm.)
Results came back as:
Raised TSH 8.00 (0.27-4.2)
Normal FT4 14.8 (10.5-24.5)
He just gave me a call to tell me we had to do new blood test in 2-3 months. They will then test for FT3.
B12 came back as elevated
How elevated does TSH need to be before medication? I don't want to take any chances as she is so young and has so much development and growth to do. Any advice or shared experiences would be greatly appreciated.
