Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified pediatrician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Please answer a few questions for me. What range do your son's blood sugars usually run when under good control? How much Synthroid was he prescribed, in mcg and when did he start? When did you start noticing the higher glucose levels, and how high are they running now, compared to his usual normal range? Thank you in advance for your replies.
