Hello, my daughter, who is 14 years old was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and exophthalmos at the beginning of April. After reading some of the posts on this forum, which have been really useful, I get the impression we are in for a long journey. Currently, she is taking carbimazole 40mg and propranolol 80mg and she has eye drops.
She has displayed all the usual symptoms and her concentration levels have just started to pick up. She is in Year 10 so this is the middle of her GCSE course. Thus far the school have been very supportive. After some time off she is back at school on a reduced timetable. However, I don't think the school and teachers really understand how much this will effect her. We have just got letters from her GP to claim 'special conditions' in the exams she recently taken. Looking forward I'd really like some constructive ideas about how to support her and anyone's experiences of working with the school/teachers would be great.
