I suspect that my 6 yr old son has Graves. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid/graves shortly after he was born and have had a terrible time with my eyes ever since. Has anyone had any experiences with discovering that their disorder has been passed down to their children? I’m having a hard time finding any info on this condition in children and its’ long term affects. It breaks my heart to think that he may have to deal with all these unpleasant symptoms, especially at such a young age. If anyone has any advice or information, feel free to contact me.
