Elevated T4 Count Will Pregnancy
Does an elevated T4 count mean that I will definitely have a molar pregnancy or what else could it be?
Probably thyroid: T4 is the measure of thyroid hormone. If it is elevated, it could be normal or a sign of hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid. If your blood pregnancy hormone (HCG) is really high due to a molar pregnancy or having more than one baby, it can make your T4 high. The other tests to do to find out the cause would be tsh, t3, HCG and us. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hypothyroid.: If I read your statement correctly, and I'm not sure I do, you are still hypothyroid and need to stay on the higher dose. Your numbers are somewhat confusing, but with your TSH still elevated at 4.57 on 75 mcg of Synthyroid you are not corrected and should not go down despite whatever the free T4 level is. In fact if you were my patient I would have increased your dose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My TSH level is 4.0 but my T3 and T4 is normal. Do I still need meds? And can I be on it during pregnancy?
See Endocrinologist: There is emerging data to suggest we should consider treating subclinical hypothyroidism if you have tpo antibodies. It's still just new evidence, and a full discussion with your endocrinologist may be helpful, especially if you fall into category of tpo negative subclinical hypothyroidism- in that case, clinical judgement and your preferences will play a larger role. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I had embryo transfer on 29th nov.And get pregnancy with 1297 beta hCG on 17.Today my TSH and T4 is 4.78 & 1.31.Is it normal or should take medicine.?
Hi my TSH level is 5.79 with normal T4 levels and thyroid antibody. Is it safe to plan a pregnancy with the above reading?
Check this out first: You have slightly high TSH levels (0.4-5 mu/l nml range) and T4 is ok. If you have thyroid ab, you should get some workup for what it might be because it might point to your high tsh, and might indicate an underlying disease, like hashimoto's that you should be treated for before you think of pregnancy. Even if you don't have thyroid ab, you should get a thorough workup for unexpected findings. ...Read more
If T4&T3 is slightly above normal levels in pregnancy, no history before, the patient has attacks of palpitations. .does she needs treatment? Thanks.
Thyroid & Pregnancy: Thryoid tests T4 & T3 rise in pregnancy(1.5 times normal) normally, while free T4 & T3 are normal. You need to check your TSH, free T4. If free T4 is high & TSH very low--think overactive thyroid gland or hyperthyroidism. If normal look for other causes of palpitations, such too much caffeine, anxiety, other medications ...Read more
Blood work shows TSH levels extremely low 0.04, but normal t4. I'm 11 weeks pregnant. Should I be worried that it can affect my pregnancy and baby?
Hyperthyroid: Hi. There are several kinds of hyperthyroidism, so of which can potentially affect the fetus. You should see an endocrinologist for assessment and management. I would check TSI & TRAb antibodies; they cross the placenta. Your fetus is just making its thyroid now. However, if you need anti-thyroid drugs, they are safe during pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more
