Re: Hyper children? Questions!
Normal ranges on thryoid tests are different for children. Even so, her TSH is barely below that range....when we are truly hyper our TSH is generally .01 or less.
Failure to grow appropriately (stunted growth) is more associated with HYPOthyroidism and low thyroid levels or low growth hormone levels. Ya'll might want to ask them to check her growth hormone levels. Good luck!
