TSH high for my 8 weeks old son
Hello Doctor,

The table given below is the Thyroid, Bilirubin test results of my 50days old new born son. He had a prolonged jaundice after his birth which had Bilirubin level over 13.5. The doctor suggested a Thyroid test to find the cause for prolonged jaundice after 5 weeks. Now he has confirmed that the TSH is the cause for this. He has given a prescription to my son. That is lthyroxine.

It would be very greatful if you can let me know this prescription could help my son to have a normal life. Should he undergo any other tests. Will he be fine after a course of time. This is worrisome for myself, my wife and for my family. Is this a complication which will be all thro his life. Will it affect any of his features. Please advice.

Thanks,
Antony
