Hi, I have a very poorly two year old who hasn’t the energy to get through the day most days. After blood tests galore, it seems he has an overactive thyroid. However, doctors are baffled because his T4 is raised (as I believe it should be with an over active thyroid) but his TSH is also raised- which is usually low with over active thyroid? Doctors are baffled and calling for more bloods. I just feel like I need to be as educated as possible on this as it’s taken six months for this diagnosis and the thought of waiting even longer for answers terrifies me. He’s only two and a half and at such a crucial age of growing and brain development and his pot body just doesn’t have the energy for any of it. I’d be interested to know if anyone knows anything about thyroid storms as well. He keeps getting really poorly episodes where his heart rate is through the roof and his temp is 40. We kept getting told it was viral. It was happening every few weeks for a good few months. But I’m now wondering if it’s thyroid storms. Or would he not get better if it was that without the medication? I hope this all makes sense. And thank you in advance. I pray someone has some knowledge of this. Thank you.
