New here! My daughter who will be five next monday, was diagnosed by her pediatrician a week ago with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. She is scheduled to see the endo on Wednesday. I am getting two stories, one from the ped and one from the nurse from the endos office. Ped said it is for sure Hashimoto's , endo says hypothyroiditis, but states she can not be sure until they see her on Wednesday. My child has had a "goiter" since she was 8 months old, but we were always told it was caused by enlarged tonsils. Not until we went in for a sick appointment last monday did anybody show concern over it. The ped (not her normal ped) checked her over said she was probably a little dehydrated. Long story short, I told him I wanted him to look at her throat cuz the other doc said it was nothing but I felt uneasy with that answer. Of course, he ordered stat blood work. Came back her TSH levels were high. Then after the other blood work came back we were given the diagnosis. I asked for specifics on her blood work and was told to wait until the visit with the endo cuz he wasn't comfortable releasing that info until the endo actually diagnosed her??????? WTF???? SO, I am just interested in knowing if anybody here is dealing with this hashimoto's. or if anybody knows of any children that are. From what I have found on the internet, mainly children from ages 11-18 are diagnosed with this!! So, any help would be sooooooo appreciated!!!
