Hi everyone, My son is 6 yrs old and is bipolar. He has been having a lot of trouble at school and outbursts on a daily basis. Today we found out he has abnormal functioning thyroid. I am suspecting based on research that he has hyperthyroidism. They are starting him on a new medication for thyroid. Does anyone have knowledge of thyroid meds and what they do to help?
In my research I found that this could be causing some of his outbursts at school.
