Need help for daughter with hypo symptoms but close to normal lab results
My daughter (19 years old) has been suffering from hypothyroid symptoms for several years. We have been to several doctors starting with her GP, dermatologist and an Endo.
She has the following symptoms:
-eyebrows have completely fallen out
-hair is thinning
-severe itchy skin and rashes
-weight gain (especially upper body)
-very low energy levels/depression
-feels cold and does not sweat
-several other symptoms consistent with hypo.
The following lab results are from the past couple of years:
7/16/2009 (<20 IU/ml)
3/30/2010 (<10 IU/ml)
7/16/2009 (<10 IU/ml)
3/30/2010 (20 IU/ml)
We have been unable to get any resolution from any of her doctors. The dermatologist says it is a thyroid/hormone/autoimmune issue and the endo. says she may be insulin resistant. We have tried low carb, diets, no sugar diets, etc. Nothing we have done seems to help her.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
