Many thyroid conditions have been and continue to be incorrectly diagnosed through exclusive use of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) testing as the sole signifier of possible thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, TSH is wrongly considered by the majority of endocrinologists and many other physicians to be the only indicator required to produce an accurate and comprehensive analysis of one’s thyroid health. Because of this many people come away from their physicians as being misdiagnosed or having their thyroid condition completely disregarded. Download the National Academy of Hypothyroidism's recommended lab tests and take them to your doctor!
Hey, my daughter is seven years old and she has got hypothyroidism. She has got some problem with her pituitary gland and that has interfered with the production of thyroid hormone. Doctors have termed this condition as congenital hypothyroidism.
She has dental cavities as she has the habit of consuming too many chocolates. I am planning to take her to a dental clinic, which provides children dentistry services ( http://www.centenarydental.com/female-kids-dentist-dr-stacey-stein/ ) in Toronto.
Is it okay to take a child with hypothyroidism to a dentist? What are the things to be noted before taking her to a dentist?
