Is TSH normal in pregnancy?

Is TSH normal in pregnancy?

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

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

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

Thyroid problem: Decrease TSH may be a result of primary disease of pituitary gland causing secondary hypothyroidism or it may be a consequence of negative feed back of elevated thyroid hormone (T4) in thyrotoxicosis. 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

TSH levels is 2.14 and freeT4 is 1.1 at 12 wks pregnancy. Normal? When will baby makes it own thyroid? Tht means baby won't depend on my thyroid levels?

Normal: Your thyroid levels are normal. You did not mention whether you are on thyroid hormone or not. If you are, you should get thyroid levels done periodically during the pregnancy to make sure that the levels remain normal, regardless of whether the baby's thyroid is working 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

Should my thyroid (tsh) levels be under "3" before trying pregnancy (ie to insure a healthier pregnancy)? I have hashimoto hypothyroidism.

Depends: A TSH level of 3 determined 24 hours after the last and immediately before taking the next pill indicates that the thyroid hormone administered is sufficient - if if was taken within hours of taking a dose of thyroid hormone, the amount of thyroid hormone administered may be too low by the time you will be taking your next dose. ...Read more

My wife aging 31 has thyroid problem. Tsh test result is 56.9. What's the best medicine for this? We're planning for kids. Will it affect pregnancy?

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

Thyroid requirements: Can vary significantly during pregnancy and lab must be monitored closely. TSH's are commonly low or low normal in early pregnancy. A TSH of 4.75 is too high if you are attempting conception. Check w/your doctor. Make sure you are on brand name replacement for safety and consistency. ...Read more

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
