Endocrinologist 's  Response
Good day,
Are you sure about the year of birth? If he was born in 2012, he would be 5 years old now. In any case, TSH is clearly abnormal and child need further tests to find the cause. Meet an endocrinologist near your locality. Your child needs tests like Anti TPO and thyroid scan. Can not comment on the dose with out knowing his weight.
