My beautiful 8 year-old granddaughter was just dx’d with hypothyroid–TSH level of 67.2 where normal is something like 5. She’s been increasingly sad and listless and uncomfortably low-energy over the last year or more, so it’s great to have a dx and a treatment. I realize it’s a bit off-topic for TUD but I’m asking here because this is where I learned that there was a T1 and hypo-T association. The problem is that everything I read is all from the p.o.v. that if you have T1 you should be concerned about developing hypothyroidism, but I can’t find anything about wether it works the other way as well–whether if you develop hypo-T as a kid, you should be vigilant about developing T1. Does anyone here know?
ETA: I know not all forms of hypo-T are auto-immune. Not sure whether hers is or not, though I know there’s a hereditary predisposition to hypo-T on her father’s side, if that has anything to do with it.
