Just wanted to follow up and see how you and your son are doing.
The reason I asked about the range for the FT3 is that the only one I have ever seen before that was expressed in pmol/L was 3.5 - 7.7. Your son's FT3 result is inconsistent with his FT4 and TSH results and most of his symptoms, including constipation. It's unfortunate that you have to wait until end of July to learn more. Is it a Pediatric Endo or a regular Pediatrician you will be seeing? Do you have any info about the doctor that gives you confidence of his being a good thyroid doctor? I'm not familiar with the Health Care system in Australia, so don't know if you have the ability to choose your own Doctor or not. Interestingly my son finagled a semester of college in Curtin University in Perth some years ago. He loved everything about Perth except the travel time to get there.
Glad that you are following up for your son. Symptoms like those aren't normal and should be investigated further. I noticed that doctor said that results were slightly irregular. Was there no further discussion of what was meant by that and what was recommended? Also, the FT3 results seem inconsistent with other results and symptoms. Would you please double check the range info. Also, what lab ran the tests? I am going to contact one or two of our most knowledgeable and experienced members and ask them to have a look and respond to your post as well. Regardless, I agree with blsdnsvd that you should find an Endo that is a good thyroid doctor. That is not the case for every Endo. What area do you live in? Maybe we can help locate one for your son.
Hi, i dont't think"last results were fine and no future tests were necessary" is a good idea every 6 weeks to 6 months there should be a lab test and 1 mcg per pound body weight of thyroixine will need. Better consult with an endo doc.
