Pregnant. Low haemoglobin, high TSH. Will this affect the unborn baby?
TSH at 7.2 is very high and definitely needs medication. High TSH levels indicate hypothyroidism and this does have a negative effect on the fetus. It may cause brain development problems hence the TSH levels need to be controlled. Apart from the folic acid, prednidoxin, start eltroxin 25 once daily on empty stomach. The dose can be titrated by your doctor accordingly. Also the hemoglobin needs to be between 11-14 so increase iron in your diet. Your iron supplement will start after 14 weeks. Till then a balanced and iron XXXXXXX diet is important.
