Thyroid Disease

An underactive thyroid is the most common thyroid disorder in children. It’s most often from autoimmune thyroiditis called Hashimoto’s disease. Hypothyroidism can affect a child’s growth, pubertal development, and school performance.

Other symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Cold intolerance
  • Constipation
  • Dry skin
  • Brittle hair
  • Muscle aches and pains

Conventional treatment for thyroid disease is medication. The goal of therapy is to restore healthy growth and development.

“I felt like no one was listening as I watched our daughter’s health decline with extreme exhaustion from thyroid disease. With Dr. Sue, my daughter felt she was being heard and that someone finally believed her symptoms. I appreciate Dr. Sue’s compassion yet direct conversations. We realized her health plan was working when my daughter’s energy improved and her thinking became clear again. If she gets off her gluten-free diet, she recognizes her irritability and puts herself back on the correct path. That’s exciting!” – Julie Walters
