Hello and thankyou for approaching DoctorSpring with your query.
I have gone through your tests results and will answer you question as follows.
1) It is normal to have some amount of antibodies. It is only when the levels are above the normal levels that we call it 'positive' for the antibodies. At these levels, you are not at a risk of developing an autoimmune thyroid condition.
2) Yes , positive levels put women at a higher risk but NOT in your case, as your levels are low.
3) No. It is not so. these antibodies do not cross or cause that kind of thyroid problem that your child has.
To know if the child's condition is transient or permanent will need a reassessment after brain development is complete, that is beyond 3yrs of age. So till then, it will be better to continue medication and follow up.
I hope this has helped, feel free to follow up with any queries.
