Hashimotos
My son is 17. He is 4ft. 10inches. Although he has gained weight over the summer, his weight is 110lbs. We were told today he has Hashimotos and was put on Thyroid medication. All hormone and other such labs came back ok. Will Synthroid help his stunted growth?

Hi!
I can understand your concerns. If the growth plates have not fused then synthryoid supplementation may help with growth. Also, it is important to have normal growth hormone levels. Also, at 17 years, he only has a few years to grow (until 21 years). Most of the growth in height would have happened by now. So even if he gains height it may not be like adding inches as he would have had he been in the age group 14-16 years. However, please discuss with his treating doctors. Take care!
