    My dd is so tired lately, she comes home from school, eats, homework and then bed and has been like this for a week. Two weeks ago we had thryoid tested and it is still working of course her antibodies are very very high.
    Went to ped. today and he is doing some blood count work. Not sure why he doesn't explain things very well.
    Anyone else have any ideas
    She is on a multivitamin and b-vitamin

    We're going through the same thing. Just took her to the pediatrician today and found out she's anemic.

    My daughter also tested positive for Hashimoto's antibodies. But since she wasn't having symptoms, we choose not to treat it. If she doesn't feel better after starting the iron supplement, we'll talk to the endo about starting synthroid.

    Hopefully you'll get your blood work back soon. They tested for anemia right in the office so we had our answer right away.

    All the best.

    Could be anemia or Low Vitamin D levels, we all take at least 4000 IU's of Vit D in winter and 2000 in the summer months. Some Vitamin C might help was well.
