Hashimoto’s in a Teenager

00:00:03
So the topic we've been asked to broach today is hashimoto's thyroiditis in a teenager so again
00:00:11
these questions this question is kind of an open-ended question if it's a question at all it's it's like
00:00:17
okay does teenagers get it are they different than adults what do they experience
00:00:23
so i'll try to hit all of those so yes teenagers get it um i i have a i have some paperwork on
00:00:34
someone i'm going to be consulting in the next few days and they're 17.
00:00:41
just for the record we have seen a lot of teenage hashimoto's um and and
00:00:51
the two and and and and and we've even seen it younger than 10. so hashimoto's
00:01:00
is seems like it's evolving through genetic lines and it's showing up earlier and earlier i don't know if
00:01:08
it's because more we're aware of it if the testing is better because it's not particularly better but if we're
00:01:12
looking at the ranges better um it's so but it feels to me like it's just promulgating
00:01:21
itself more through through through our patient populations through society so yes people get it and 17
00:01:31
what i have seen is um is those seminal moments in life seem to set it off
00:01:39
um like puberty uh the teenagers seem to blow up especially the ones that go to college
00:01:50
they seem to blow up their freshman year in college and it's like duh
00:01:54
so they already have the genetic propensity to to develop uh hashimoto's
00:02:01
and now they go to college and they're like their schedules are a little bit off
00:02:06
maybe they don't go to sleep at ten o'clock every night and get up at like six o'clock in the morning and take
00:02:11
their shower and dutifully go off to their classes just saying that there's
00:02:17
a small group of college students like that maybe they are eating in the cafeteria maybe
00:02:23
they're eating gluten all over the place maybe they're partying a little bit on a friday or saturday night maybe their
00:02:28
blood sugars are all over the place because they're you know they're not eating well their circadians are
00:02:34
rid of their sleep is all over the place because it's college and so that's and then
00:02:40
there's the stress of the freshman year and and the in and being on your own and
00:02:45
trying to find classes just that whole thing is uh is very stressful and so i i see
00:02:52
a lot of hashimoto's blow up in in that particular period of time and so um and the other thing i see blow it up
00:03:01
is just stress in a sense that if that teenager is in a difficult situation
00:03:10
at home with um stress from maybe a recent divorce or you know those types of things these
00:03:20
seem to trigger them but i mean i mean the ultimate answer is yeah they get it
00:03:24
yes teenagers get it and it's the and the symptoms are no different than when you
00:03:30
get it when you're 50 or when you're 40 or when you're 30 i mean it's the same thing
00:03:35
i'm fatigued sometimes it's you know my hair is falling out i started putting on weight i couldn't go to class i had to
00:03:42
drop out of school my bowels are bad just just everything is the same so
00:03:48
you should if you suspect hashimoto's in your teenager you should know yes they get it
00:03:56
yes the symptoms are the same no it's not just because they went to college but that may be the trigger and you
00:04:04
should check for it you should check them to see the antibodies and at that point in time i
00:04:09
wouldn't put them on any new diets i wouldn't put them on take them off of gluten or anything like that
00:04:14
i would just make sure that they're doing exactly what they're doing so that you can make sure that the
00:04:19
antibodies are up when you check for them go in hopefully i have a doctor who
00:04:26
may be aware of this and and should be aware of this but it's just i think it's just i think it's
00:04:32
kind of date is just seeping out into the medical world just like drip by drip a little bit at a time
00:04:39
and if you can get a doctor to check them further thyroid then that's what you should do
00:04:43
because without a doubt your teenager could have hashimoto's thyroiditis
