Neonatal hypothyroid syndrome
Is a high level of TSH in a preemie (28-30 weeks) always indicative of adult hypothyroidism, or is there a developmental reason why this may occur such as undeveloped thyroid gland, liver function unable to process THG or T4 into T3 etc. I am concerned that early administering of thyroxine may prevent normal thyroid development by lowering TSH levels, thus causing the disease rather than treating it. As you may guess, I have done some research into this, but am not medically trained, just interested in my childs long term health.

What does the doctor say?

If you aren't comfortable with what you are being told, I would advise you to get a second opinion with a pediatric endocrinologist.  This forum is not moderated by physicians, unfortunately.

Good luck!
