CBC AND DOWN SYNDROME
My thirteen year old ds daughter has hypothyroidism controlled by meds. and was just diagnosed with asthma. She has had three open heart surgeries, also. Her cbc values were all in range, but a couple things looked funny to me. Wondered if any of you have had cbc's done on your kiddos and if you would be willing to share some thoughts and results. I am most interested in wbc,eosonophils,monocytes, platelets, and lymphocytes. Thanks so mucg for any info., i just want to do some comparing and contrasting.

My son is 38, he has regular blood work done yearly with his checkups, but always within normal range, he is on cumadin for life now, had  a necrotic bowel that required major surgery  6 years ago, and he developed clots, I do know that hypo thyroid is very comman , and if asthma runs in the family, that can happen also.  All I can suggest is just to ne vigilent  and  keep your daughter as healthy as possible.

Hello!

I am a 41 yr old with hypothyroidism (I have had radioactive iodine treatments for a nodule) I have been having weird things going on with my body lately and had recently had my blood count done besides my THS.  I had low Lymphosytes and Monophosytes but high Eosonophils.  My doctor just told me to take allergy meds. but I have done that and am worse.  My symptoms are so bad that I cannot work.  I have been to many doctors in many states and tired of all the wrong diagnosis.  
Have you/your daughter had thiks trouble as well??

I  am 43 and have had/had all the same issues that you have mentioned as well with no help!  I am now being tested for celiac disease, gluten, wheat allergies.  I just got my results back but cannot read them or understand them, waiting on my Very slow doctor to contact me back.  have you had your Gliadin antibodys IGA and IGG tested?  Don't know if this will show anything or is related but read somewhere that people with thyroid disorders are more likely to have it..  Just a thought....
Good luck!!!!!
