hypothyroidism since birth means child born with improper thyroid gland or no thyroid gland at all. children born with it are bound to face growth issues like

  • shorter than average height
  • shorter than average limbs
  • permanent teeth that develop later
  • puberty that starts later
  • slowed mental development
  • heart rate that is slower than average
  • hair may be brittle
  • facial features may be puffy

for treatment, please visit your pediatrician as they would test your child’s TSH level and then decide the dose of the medicine.
