I meed information regarding Pregnancy
My wife is 23weeks pregnant now,and recently we had regular checkup with doctor,her TSH is 7.5,I would like to know what is the severiaty related to Thyroid
her TSH is high
it is moderately severe
she must take thyroid medicines for the same
She is taking it,may I know whathappens if it is high
baby may have problem with the growth
Growth means is it physical or mental
both physical and mental growth of the baby may be affected
Latest Scan report says BPD=57mm AC=197 HC=219 FL=42 EFW=656gms FHB=148\min,do you feel is their any effect on baby till now?
no, the report is normal
baby is doing fine
are you there?
Can we control thyroid by means of food also,anyhow she is taking thronorm25
no, she must take the medicine
there is no food supplement for it
Also she is getting white discharge from vegina,is that normal
yes, that is normal,nothing to worry
are you there?
Last question,why the TSH will increase in first trimester she has TSH=3.5 now it is 7.5,and she was continiosly taking medicine for that (thyronorm12.5)
because the demand will increase as the pregnancy progresses
both mother and the baby would require more thyroid hormone
is this will have impact on mother too
both of them require optimum amount of thyroid hormone
Ok Dr,finally is this worrism matter,what is the upperlimit of TSH during pregnancy
it is not worrisome if medicines are taken correctly
upper limit of TSH during first 3 months is 3.5
next 3 months 4
and last month is 4.5
do you have any more queries?
Ok,by taking medicines continuously will reduce the numbers? why I am asking this is she is taking medicine right from the first trimester but still she got such a high value of 7,5,thats bit worrying,do we need to have any additional test
no additional tests are required
she has to take medicine continually,then the TSH will be normal
Please note that a value of 7.5 is not high
some people have more than 15 to 20
7.5 is still ok
thank you too
please ask me any more queries that you may have
At this point that's it ,will like to contact soon.
pleasure is mine
