Small child, frequent headaches, tiredness, fever, sweating. Abnormality in thyroid. Treatment?

Hello, I have a question about my 4 year old nephew. He is having frequent headaches [3-4 times a day]. He gets very tired when he gets the headache. When they checked the blood they were told that there is some abnormality with his thyroid . he also experiences increased body temp, sweating even in cold temp. He is otherwise a very active baby. I was worrying whether it might be something serious.

Thank you for your query,
As your child is having frequent headaches, excessive tiredness, increased body temperature and sweating even in cold temperature these symptoms may occur with thyroid abnormality and mostly it is due to hyper function thyroid.
You told child blood for thyroid function test is abnormal so mostly it is suggestive of hyperthyroidism.
So consult Pediatrician with the thyroid reports and he will guide you properly.
