Detailed Answer:
Welcome back!
I have seen the reported thyroid hormones results.
The TSH is high suggestive for underactive thyroid.
It should be Hashimoto thyroiditis (a very common chronic autoimmune disease of the thyroid gland) but should be confirmed by checking the antibodies (AntiTPo, AntiTg). These antibodies attack the thryoid gland, destroying it and as a result the thyroid function remains under active. The treatment consist in taking the thryoid hormone by mouth.
She should not get worried because the hormonal level will be corrected within 1 month after starting treatment with levothyroxine. The treatment is longlife.
Why it is just appeared now? It is unknown.
It may be also postpartum thyroiditis but in these cases the hormonal alterations are seen within the first 6 months after giving birth and you mentioned that they have been normal.
So, Hashimoto thyroiditis is more probable.
Hope i have been helpful.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
