Thryoid?

Malachi has been sick, go figure. While we were at the pediatricians office, for the 3rd time in 2 weeks, they decided to run some labs to check for allergies. While they were taking blood I ashed her to go ahead and check his thyroid. While the RSV, Influenza A and B and allergies all came back negative, his TSH came back at 5.79 and his T4 came back at 1.1. We were referred to a pediatric endocrinologist. Just wondering if any of you have been through this and can offer good questions to ask. Thanks!

Owen has been on thyroid medication from when he was 9 weeks old ! Its really not a big deal the medication is super dissolvable and easy to take.

Jax has also been on thyroid meds almost his whole life. We never went to endo, although we probably should. They just started him on synthoid and check levels about every 6 months!
