Hi, I have left a discussion on here before and everyone has even most helpful. But my little boy has had more tests since the last post so here I am again...
But of background. My son is 2 and a half and after being very tired and losing weight suddenly, we were sent for bloods. His blood results showed a raised T4 meaning he was showing over active? I think that’s right isn’t it? Anyway we were sent for more bloods and they came back with a raised T4 once again (even higher than the previous blood tests) but what confuses doctors was that his T4 was also raised and apparently, that should be low with over active thyroid? So we were sent for more tests! And the results are as follows (I’m afraid I don’t have the numbers in brackets so I’m sorry if these are needed. I hope you can help regardless!)
T4 was 21 in May and is now 25
TSH was 9.32 and is now 9.12
The paediatrician is totally confused and is hoping to get some more knowledge from an endocrinologist in Manchester which is the nearest one to us. We are awaiting a phone call with more info. Anyone know if these results are really bad? Should we go private or is it something we can wait out until she’s got back to us (hopefully next week!) and does anyone have experience of both raised T4 and TSH as I’m sure that’s what the paediatrician is saying the issue is. You’ll have to excuse my ignorance with it all- it all confuses me and I’m trying so hard to educate myself but it’s a minefield!
Thank you in advance.
