What would be the side effects on baby, is it harmful for baby and what should be the precaution taken by her.

Brief Answer:
High SGPT is a concern

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) TSH less than 5 is fine. No problem.

2) SGPT is high and needs to be treated. This is harmful for mother and baby.

3) Please repeat Liver function test after another week from a different laboratory. If abnormal we need to treat this. Please let me know the reports after a week.

4) No precations need to be taken as of now.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
