From Ponce de Leon, Florida, USA:

My daughter is 12 and has type 1 diabetes and hypothyroidism. Will this cause her to start her period later than normal? She weighs 80 pounds and is 4 feet, 6 inches tall. Also, she is very active.


As long as your daughter's hypothyroidism is properly treated, she will start her period on time.
