My 8 year old daughter's doctor decided to test my daughters blood because she fell in December of 2009 and broke her left collar bone and she just fell last week and broke her right collar bone. Her labs came back today and he told me her thyroid levels were high so prescribed a generic form of Synthroid. Then sent her over for an ultrasound of her thyroids and that woman told me my daughter has a cyst on her right lobe. They are going to do another ultrasound in 3 months to check it. I walked away very confused as I know nothing about
this. I have been researching all day and don't know if she has Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism? Also I have also read that these are not diseases they are symptoms of something else. My sister has Celiac and my grandmother has Lupus, is there a possibility my daughter may have one of these? What causes this? Her level was 6.69. Also her doctor did not refer her to an endocrinologist should I ask him to? Also could this be why she breaks her bones easily? Someone please help I am very confused and very concerned.
Thanks in advance!
