Brief Answer:
It is normal for age

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on this platform

The thyroid function test is absolutely normal for this age. The TSH value of 1-6 with T3 level less than 200 and T4 between 7-16 is normal in babies from 1-12 month.
So you need not to worry for that.

I shall be glad to help further if you need any.

Actually my baby is facing constipation. she is not having her motion everyday and she is uncomfortable while passing . So we went to doctor he suggested the thyroid test.

For passing stool he prescribed- Lactulose Solution USP, EVICT

After this syrup she is passing stool everyday.

Please suggest

Brief Answer:
Hold lactulose and observe for stool pattern

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for follow up

Passing stool once in 3-4 days or 7-8 times in a day is normal in this age.
I won't get worried if baby is otherwise active, taking feeds well, there is no vomiting, abdominal distension or stool is not very hard/mixed with blood(due to injury by hard stool).
Thyroid function test should be routinely done in all the babies as apart from cause of constipation, it is the commonest treatable cause of mental retardation.
As baby is passing stool now, I would like to hold the syrup and suggest you to observe for the pattern of stool. Long term use of lactulose should be avoided unless the symptoms are significant.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Dr. Manoranjan, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in February of this year. I do have lab-work from 2009 showing a spiked level of TSH (my primary physician ignored it). In June, my TSH level finally reached a normal level of 1.6. It started at 86. However, my weight still fluctuates and I am gaining again. Is it possible that my TSH level has increased again? My endocrinologist also found two small nodules in June on my thyroid that are being looked at again soon. One was less than 1 cm in size all around (he isn t concerned) and the other is about 2 cm in size all around. I am 22 years old. Is it likely that these will shrink? Thank you, Kayla
