My son was diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism shortly after birth and consequently he has taken levothyroxine his entire life. He has a blood test once a year and has taken 200 micrograms daily for some time.
He is just about to turn 30. He is overweight and suffers from dry, scaly skin. His blood tests always come back normal and his doseage is therefore considered correct.
Should he be asking for a review of his medical condition, given that he has had no clinical assessment of his hypothyroidism since he was discharged from Great Ormond Street as a child?
