The Likelihood Of Thyroid Disease Decreases In Infants Aged 7 Months?
honey want to ask. my son is 7 months old since the age of 3 months he started to sweat a lot, and now my son is super active. I previously had hyperthyroidism (before marriage) but now it’s normal. can hyperthyroidism decrease? thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Babies sweating a lot can be a normal thing, this is due to various factors including hot room temperature, clothes that are too thick, as a part of food processing, babies who are too active, and so on.
However, cold sweats in babies can also indicate abnormalities, such as lack of oxygen, low blood sugar levels, congenital heart disease, and infections. But of course, this condition is usually accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, the baby looks weak, tight, looks pale or blue and so on.
Regarding your question, hyperthyroidism might be lowered in the following way. In one type of hyperthyroid condition, namely Graves' disease, the patient has an abnormality in the immune system in which a certain substance stimulates the overproduction of thyroid hormone. When the person is pregnant, certain substances can cross the placenta and cause abnormalities in the baby they are carrying. However, this condition is usually temporary.
Because there are so many possibilities, we suggest that you get your baby checked by a pediatrician for further thorough examination. If an abnormality is suspected, your pediatrician may order an ultrasound, blood test etc. to narrow down the possibility.
Meanwhile, keep fulfilling your baby's fluid needs by giving him breast milk and solids, wear thin clothes and if the clothes look wet, change them immediately so that other skin disorders don't appear. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
