Q. Are there remedies to stop early maturity?



Hi doctor,

My granddaughter became obese last year. The doctors detected some thyroid problem. After taking the pills she became normal. Now, she is expected to have early maturity. She is 6 years now. Before three years she had a head injury. But, she was normal and it was ignored. What treatment she should take now?





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

  • Hypothyroidism itself can be one of the causes of this prematurity.
  • When have you got thyroid levels done? I suggest you to repeat if not done recently.
  • What is the height of the child and her current weight?
  • How much dose of thyroid hormone you are giving?

  • Investigations to be done:

    1. Ultrasonography of neck.

    2. Anti-TPO antibody (anti-thyroid peroxidase)

    3. Check levels of T3, T4 and TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone).

  • Regarding follow up:
