How is hyperthyroidism dangerous for a pregnancy?

How is hyperthyroidism dangerous for a pregnancy?

Hyperthyroidism: I agree with dr. Chapa's answer. In addition, recent research has suggested that ptu (propylthiouracil) has more adverse effects than methimazole, with fda slapping a black box warning on ptu (propylthiouracil) regarding liver toxicity potential recently. According to latest guidelines from aace & american thyroid association, Methimazole is the preferred agent. Ptu (propylthiouracil) is to be used in the first trimester, Methimazole subsequently after. ...Read more

I have hyperthyroidism. Is taking ptu (propylthiouracil) ok in pregnancy?

Category "D": Ptu (propylthiouracil) works by preventing a final stage of thyroid hormone assembly in the gland.The fetal gland is generally finished forming by 11wks, & they begin to make their own hormone. While most would avoid ptu (propylthiouracil) after 11 wks, it is a better choice for early pregnancy than some alternatives. You need to discuss your pregnancy concerns with your dr & come up with a plan that works for u & baby. ...Read more

I had hyperthyroid during my pregnancy . Now my baby is three months old n I still have overactive thyroid. Is it true that It will continue forever ?

I had hyperthyroid during my pregnancy . Now my baby is three months old n I still have overactive thyroid. Is it true that It will continue forever ?

Possibly: It sounds like you have Graves disease that started during pregnancy. About 20-30% of patients with this will go into remission while taking antithyroid drugs. However, that means that 70-80% of patients will have recurrence of hyperthyroidism when they stop the medication. The options then are to do surgery to remove most of the thyroid, or receive radioactive iodine. ...Read more

I am suffer with hyperthyroid problem.Daily i was taken medicine, but i want to be pregnant . Please suggest home remedies for pregnancy?

No home remedy: There is no home remedy. If you want to be pregnant make sure your hyperthyroidism has been successfully treated by either antithyroid drugs or radioiodine. Fix the thyroid before you attempt to become pregnant. Hyperthyroidism reduces fertility, it's your body's way of telling you not to get pregnant at this time until it's fixed. ...Read more

I was just told I have hyperthyroidism. I am also 13 weeks pregnant how will this affect my baby/pregnancy. they will give me an u/s to check the baby?

Is it Graves'?: Hi. Thyroid hormone doesn't cross the placenta well, so your hyperthyroidism per se won't hurt the baby. If it's Graves' disease, the Graves' antibodies can cross the placenta and sometimes cause fetal goiter and hyperthyroidism. If you are treated with PTU (propylthiouracil) (by week 13, you can also use methimazole), that can affect fetal thyroid, and dose should be kept as low as reasonable. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to have Hashimoto's, start out hyperthyroid during pregnancy and slowly become hypothyroid and not gain a considerable amount of weight?

YES: Early Hashimotos THYROIDITIS can result in elevated thyroid hormone levels and later on as the organ gets replaced by inflammatory tissue the thyroid function can fall! SYMPTOMS however do NOT necessarily reflect the laboratory findings. A CLINICAL evaluation by a Board Certified Endocrinologist is advised! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

Doctor said that i've hyperthyroidism, I have TSH 0.29, and 17& oh-p 0.58; last two month i've follicular cyst, is it problem for pregnancy?

One mildly: Depressed TSH does not conclusively prove you have hyperthyroidism -- more testing and further evaluation are needed. If you are already pregnant, a moderate percentage of pregnant women will have mildly decreased tsh's particularly early in pregnancy, even with a normal functioning thyroid gland. Check w/your physician. ...Read more

Missed 3 periods,negatives pregnancy test.Hyperthyroidism not currently on medications. Can hyperthyroidism cause a false negative, or stop ovulation?

Missed 3 periods,negatives pregnancy test.Hyperthyroidism not currently on medications. Can hyperthyroidism cause a false negative, or stop ovulation?

No and yes: Untreated thyroid disease often disrupts a woman's menstrual cycle and so is a well-known cause of fertility problems. Thyroid disease affects every cell in your body whether you have symptoms or not, so I do not understand why you would not want to treat it. Thyroid disease does not, however, give false readings on pregnancy test. Good wishes. ...Read more
