IP and hypothyroidism in 16 year old. Any correlation?
My daughter stopped menstrating, for about 4 years now. Found that she is hypothyroid. Doctors we have seen do not know anything about IP and I think kind of afraid. One pediatric gynocologist sent us home with a subscription for expensive soy bars? Here in Nj. Any suggestions?
I am 45 and have hypothyroidism (graves disease). My period are so irregular I never know when I will have one. She need to go to a endocrine metabolism Dr. to see about this issue and you may have already done this. There is a med I took to regulate my periods called norethindrone 5 mg. As for th IP I dont know anything. Im sorry but I hope she can try the other and get herself regulated. They will explain how to take it
My daughter is seven and was diagnosed with IP a week after her birth. After experiencing growth issues (she is only 37lbs) we switched pediatricians who through blood testing also discovered she has hypothyroidism. I have done some research on whether these two could be related . I know they are both x- linked disorders. Hypothyroidism is found in the x-chromosome in the FOX3P gene and IP is found in th NEMO gene of the x-chromosome. Im no sort of expert (but I have found when it comes to IP most DR's know less about it then I do) even though I have not found any direct research showing a correlation between the two they both are linked to a defect in the X chromosome. I am interested in the answer to this question as well. Please post if you find any answers.
