Brief Answer: Everything seems normal. Detailed Answer: dear XXXXXXX Hi! I don't know who answered your last query, but as of now your present reports are all normal. you have not mentioned whether your daughter is in treatment. present values are normal. antibodies are not of much significance. she is 4 yrs of age, monitor her growth. height and weight. that is what needs monitoring in thyroid disorders of children besides TSH and FT4. if she is on treatment continue same and repeat after 3 months and let me know. regards!

Thanks much madam.Hope you are doing good.I am glad to see you again.Happy to hear you.I am not sure you have access to my old questions.It has been answered by you last time.She is not under treatment now. There was a typo in my questions that i have mentioned that previous reports are taken in September but it was actually done in last March and doctor asked me to do the test again a year later.And now i did it again which i have given in my query. If you have the access to my previous questions, you can see the height and weight growth that i have mentioned.I see the height at lower end (now she is at 93.5 cm) but it is at the same growth rate that i have seen over the year.but i don't see she is gaining much weight as she just put up 1kg almost this year.
