I can always tell when my 11 month olds PHE level is off. When they are too low he sleeps a lot and when they are too high he is very irritable. When he gets sick they are usually a lot higer than normal, but at the same time he doesn’t want to eat when he is sick so that drops them low. In the end they usually end up being in the normal range but on the high end.
