My husband has hypothyroidism and a family history of it(his mother, sister). And i got many responses that it is genetic. I'm little worried about my 15 month old baby boy. He doesnt show any signs of hypo apart from being hyperactive which is normal with toddlers that age i guess.

Other than that his growth had been great so far. Im planning to brung thus up at his 18th month welness. Any suggestions if i should get him checked with a pediatric endochrinologist just because of the history on fathers side? At his regular wellness checks i dont think the primary doctor ever checked his throat.

Hi Magaret, just ask them to run a full thyroid panel (blood test), better safe than sorry.
