Hi and thank you for this query.
I am sorry too hear about your battle with thyroid problems.Hypothyroidism
is never good news during pregnancy. Your doctor should have gotten the appropriate doses for you before letting you get pregnant. From the results, you clearly need to step up the dose of synthroid
and titrate to reach desired values through symptoms checks and TSH as suggested by your endocrinologist
. If you are status post thyroid cancer
, then checking the thyroglobulin
is a great idea.
If not corrected your baby run the risk of having cretinism as a result of hypothyroidism. The baby relies on you to get the needed thyroid hormones which are very important in the brain development of the child. As for you, it is liited to the symptoms and possible complications if any should come on.
Hope you find this helpful
Wish you all the best and hope things get figured out soon for the best outcome to you and your baby.
