Not always: Tsh and hcg, the pregnancy hormone, have very similar structures, and some biologic cross-reactivity. The high levels of HCG in pregnancy can provide enough stimulation to the thyroid to cause the thyroid to be just a little overactive and TSH to drop into the slightly low range. This is common and does not usually need treatment. A high tsh, should be treated in almost almost pregnant patients. ...Read more
Level is high: If a standardized laboratory test was done, then a level of 3.4 in the third trimester would be abnormally elevated. What to do next depends on why the test was done, and the results of other tests. Other thyroid testing is needed to determine if you are hyper or hypo thyroid, and a history and physical would also be prudent. Ask your physician about your result. ...Read more

You postpartum?: Hi. It sounds like you're no longer pregnant and you delivered your baby. Is that correct?

You may now have Graves' disease or a postpartum subacute thyroiditis. Your doc may refer you to an endocrinologist for help with diagnosis and management. Good luck! ...Read more
Planning pregnancy, Tsh was 3.40 after having thyronorm 25mg fr 1 mnth Tsh becomes 4.10. Y it happened? How much mg is needed to get to the level 2.50
Speak to your doctor: It may be that you're not getting enough thyronorm and your dose needs to be increased which seems more likely. It may take 1-3 months for the TSH level to go down, but should have been coming down if you've been taking it regularly for the past month. I suggest to talk to your doctor who has done the initial workup about adjusting your dose. ...Read more

Both may (not always) cause infertility or menstrual cycle abnormality. After treatment, hormone levels return to normal and pregnancy is achieved more easily. ...Read more

Normal: Your thyroid levels are normal. You did not mention whether you are on thyroid hormone or not.

The fetal thyroid starts making thyroid hormone during the second trimester, but normal mother levels are still needed ...Read more

Hypothyroidism reduces fertility and can endanger a pregnancy. Make sure you are on the appropriate dose of brand name T4 replacement to return your levels to normal. Baby begins to make it's own thyroid hormone about week 12, your level still affects placenta. ...Read more

Thyroid hormone: Your wife's thyroid is clearly failing. She needs to be on thyroid hormone (synthroid (thyroxine) or equivalent). This is a simple and safe medication to correct the thyroid levels. It is essential that this be corrected before pregnancy and that the levels are monitored during the pregnancy to make sure that they remain normal. ...Read more

Tsh fluctuated 3, 04-6, 46 since 2008.Last at 4, 85. T4free 1, 4. No antibodies. Now planning for pregnancy. Should I get treatment before conceiving?
Probably: Normal ranges for TSH vary but the american college of clinical endocrinology considers a TSH above 3 to be a sign of hypothyroidism. I advise checking free t3, (liothyronine) the most accurate measure of thyroid function. I find most with free t3's below 3.0 benefit from thyroid treatment. Low thyroid reduces chances of conception and increases miscarriage. See http://bit. Ly/16xtifq and http://abt. Cm/18gpb3a. ...Read more
