Just curious if anyone out there has experienced mono and also diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis?
My son is almost 16, and is a star athlete in excellent shape. Only one in the family that has never had any real illness. Over the course of 3 weeks, he began slowing down, needing more rest until he finally crashed. Blood test was positive for mono, and his thyroglobulin Antibodies were 122 IU/ml, with a normal range of <20. T3 Uptake (T3 U) was 38.3% with normal range of 25.0-40.0%. FTI (T7) was 2.6 with normal range of 1.3-5.3. T4 Total (Thyroxine Total) is 6.9 ug/dl, with normal range of 5.0-13.0. TSH is 1.805 Ulu/mL with normal range of .035-5.5. All other normal blood work was within range, and his WBC was 8.2 thou/mm3, with a range of 4.3-5.9 thou/mm3.
His pediatrition said he had a mild case of mono, and I insisted on running a full thyroid panel, plus the Thyroid Peroxidase and Thyroglobulin Antibody tests as my daughter and I both have Hashimotos Thyroiditis. He referred to an endocrinologist for a detailed work up. In the meantime, put him on 50 mcg of Synthroid, the starting dose, but I know it took forever to feel better when I started on Synthroid, bumping up over a year to higher doses till I reached 100 mcg.
I am hoping to see if he is on too low of a dose, even though he is just starting Synthroid, plus how the two diseases relate to each other. Also, I want to see test results are low, even though they indicate they are in range using lab's reference ratings listed.
Thank you in advance for your help.
