Is TSH Level Of 8 During 10th Week Of Pregnancy A Cause For Concern?
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
TSH levels above 100 have implications on the fetus like congenital hypothyroidism and mental retardation.
However, at TSH levels of 8 will not have any adverse effect on the fetus.
Medicine to control hypothyroidism should be taken regularly to avoid further complications and avoid further rise of TSH.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Thank you so much for the reply.
It has indeed come as a huge XXXXXXX of relief for me.
Could you also please confirm if i need to continue with the 100mcg thyronorm or should i reduce the dosage to 50 mcg.
