Brief Answer:
thyroid profile is normal.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX hi and welcome to HCM!
As per your query, the thyroid profile of your son is absolutely normal. but encopresis is a psychological disorder and needs to be attended by a child psychologist.
keep monitoring growth and development of the child.

Thank you mam.

But does high value of FT3 does not matter?
We have consulted a pedia Endocrinologist and he has suggested this laxative. Plus we are working with him on this. Also looking forward to consult a psychologist.

We are staying in XXXXXXX UP. Its near East XXXXXXX Can you please suggest any good child psychologist?

Thanks & Regards,

Brief Answer:
border line high FT3 is not significant.

Detailed Answer:
dear XXXXXXX FT3 a little high only means conversion of ft4 to ft3 , it is just a stage of metabolism.
so not to worry.
Now encopresis require enema, or laxative for short term, diet therapy, toilet training, school ambience and child psychologist, though i am not aware of one
in XXXXXXX in XXXXXXX yes, i could have suggested you.
regards!
