At birth, we had no indication that my child Ellie had hypothyroidism. After hospitalization for an ALTE espouse at 14 weeks, we was diagnosed with it. I contacted her doctors and they can't find a copy of her newborn screening to see if something was overlooked. I feel lost, what if my child has gone practically 4 months with the condition. According to everything I read online if left untreated it can cause mental retardation and the longer you wait the lower the iq. Has anyone had this problem? I can't seem to get any answers from doctors. (I have hypothyroidism as well, and was overly protective about it) b
