Borderline hypothyroidism revisited

Andy saw a second opinion endocrinologist as a result of a TSH level slightly out of range. This keeps happening, so I wanted to cover all bases and make sure he shouldn't be on medication for this. The doctor feels that for now, we don't need to medicate, and we can check again soon after he turns two. I am still awaiting the results of an "ultra sensitive" total thyroxine test, which will take three weeks. Even still though, the doctor feels we can probably put these worries to bed. I started to feel bad, because I couldn't help but wonder if he should have been on medication this whole time. However, she doesn't feel she would have medicated him either, so now I feel better.

  1. It's better to go natural thyroid supplements as it lessens hypothyroidism side effects than synthetics.
