Thanks for the query

More than the t4 level it is the TSH level that counts. SO kindly give me the TSH value. The level of hb is low, she needs to be on iron supplements and also u might have to arrange for blood during delivery if HB doesnt improve

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Thyroid hormones are usually higher in pregnancy. Not to worry. If her TSH level is normal then it is physiological increase and not abnormal. She needs to eat more fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Iron supplements may be indicated as well. Try Cap.Orofer XT once at night after meal but under medical supervision only.
