    Fluctuating TSH Levels in Young Teen

    My son (13) has had pretty much all of the symptoms of hypothyroidism for the past few years. His quality of life stinks. Doctors have even tried psychotropic medications for his depression and fatigue symptoms a few years ago, but they did not help. His last year of blood tests, his TSH levels were as follows: 3.3, 5.8, 8.5, and 4.2. Doctor said he would think about treating when he saw 8.5 and had us make an appointment. But then he ordered more tests at appointment and now numbers look low again at 4.2. Is it normal for TSH to fluctuate like this? We have tried various things to figure out what is going on, but all of his symptoms always lead my search back to hypothyroidism. Does anyone think this is possible with these blood results that he could in fact have hypothyroidism? Thank you.
