Kids and Hypothyroid
Friday, November 11, 2016
This Monday we took our six year-old to the GI doctor. She has had digestive issues since she was two. The doctor proceeded to tell us she was really worried about our little girl and thought she thought she had hypothyroidism. Her diagnosis was not limited to that and so we are in wait and see mode now. This week is a bunch of tests and the poor thing is on day three of a colon cleanse. Despite all this, she is in great spirits. However, we need to go take her for blood soon and I dread the moment.
I was diagnosed with hypothryoid last year, my mom has it and so does my grandmother. It is so strange to me that my grandmother and I battle our weight but my mom and my daughter are tiny. My daughter falls into the 19th percentile for weight. That is part of the reason they are worried, she is not growing too well. I guess time will tell what is going on, and I am just taking it one day at a time, as always. In the mean time, lots of fiber in our diets.
