I will start by saying I already have 3 kids with autoimmune disorders (2 with type 1 diabetes and 1 with celiac disease) so chances for dd having hashimotos are high. I just got her TSH levels back and the nurse said they were abnormal at 4.7. Her cholesterol was also high. Can you all tell me how abnormal this is and do you think she will need medication? The nurse said the doctor will call me, but that she will probably wait for the celiac panel to come in first to make sure we aren't dealing with celiac too for this dd. I'm not so good at waiting so I was hoping you could help me with any info.

It depends on the reference range for the lab you went to as to how abnormal the doc will consider this.

Did they draw other thyroid labs too? Those actually tell you more than the TSH does. Normal TSH is below 3.2 though, so at 4.7 she may need to be medicated, especially since her cholesterol is elevated.

If you have not seen this site, you may find it interesting for all of your children.
