My son was born in normal delivery, and everything was fine. But after 1 week his body covered with rash., then 1 month developed dry skin on his body. We consulted doctor they said “this is dry skin, and it will goes up once he grows up”.

My wife had some tiredness, so so we took thyroid for her ( that time my kid was 1 year), and consulted doctor said she has mild hypothyroidism. Then I go some doubt about my kid, and took lab test for my kid, it’s result was he has low t4, t3, and TSH was normal.
Doctor said it in normal range only, no need to worry on that.

Now he is 2.5 year, still not started speaking, and he has symptoms like

* Dry skin
* Bloated stomach
* Brittle Nails ( finger, and leg finger)
* Not started speaking words
* Less focus, less eye contact
* Food intake ( he has no interest in foods)
* Hair loss

His weight is normal only, I have been taking his blood tests for every 6 months. Last time I have consulted doctor again, and he said he has in normal range only. Please see the results from labs.
