My daughter 16 has been extraordinarily fatigued the last few months. At first I thought she may be depressed, but I asked for a number of blood tests, including TSH.
I have Hashimoto's (and 2 other autoimmune disorders).
Her TSH came back at 3.43 (high end of normal on non age or gender specific range), but the median for 15-18 is 1.7.
So, next the doc ordered free T3 and free T4.
Oddly, they are also on the high end of or above normal.
T3 is 6.2 and T4 is 19.
Today we went for a thyroid antibodies blood test.
Her symptoms are definitely hypo and not hyper.
Doc is referring to an endocrinologist, but has no idea how long that will take.
