Hi, thanks for asking on HCM.
You are taking appropriate drug for hyperthyroidism
. I will suggest you the following to avoid fetal complications:
-Adjust drug dose with the help of your treating doctor to maintain thyroxine
levels in high normal end or slightly higher value.
-Regular(at least 4 weekly) test for TSH
, FT4, thyroid stimulating antibodies
and USG for fetal thyroid size after 20 weeks of gestation.
- If you find any doubt at any stage, you can opt for cordocentesis to check fetal thyroid status after detailed discussion of benefit and disadvantages.
Hope this information is helpful and informative to you.
