Link between thyroid and Attention Deficit Disorder?
I was diagnosed with graves disease last year and consequently had the radioactive treatment to essentially make my thyroid no longer work. My grandfather was hyperthyroid, my brother has thyroid nodules and is also under treatment. My son is Attention Deficit (ADHD) and is on medicatation. I have been reading about some connections between ADHD and thyroid and was just wondering if anyone else had a link like this in their family, between any sort of thyroid disfunction and ADHD. I have mentioned to my son's pediatrician but he doesn't want to check his thyroid unless he see some reason other than the ADHD symptoms for the test.
