My 8-year-old daughter had labs done twice now and I have one doctor saying its concerning and another saying they are fine. I need another opinion. Labs done two months ago TSH was 5210 and free T4 was 1.43 and labs done this month are TSH is 5960 and free T4 is 1.14. I have attached lab reports for your reference.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I just read your query and from what you have attached (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it appears that your daughter has a slightly high TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone).
As of now, there is no need to take any treatment. However, her tests have to be repeated in every three months.
You have to observe her closely for growth parameters like weight and height according to her age and later keep a watch regarding achieving puberty. If any of these aspects fall behind then she needs to take treatment for it.
