I know others who have babies with hypo or hyperthyroidism. My daughter has hypothyroidism, but she was 10 years old when it was caught. It's treated with a simple medication that is a synthetic of the hormone the thyroid naturally produces. The levels will be monitored and medication adjusted according to the results of the blood tests. There is a group for moms with children with thyroid issues.
