Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Your wife definitely has Hypothyroidism and will probably require life-long treatment. Thyronorm in prescribed dose is not harmful in pregnancy. Not to worry. It will prevent effects of hypothyroidism and mental retardation in your child as this is associated with hypothyroidism. Get her levels tested as her Doctor's advise regularly, also her ultrasound and antenatal appointments on time. Hope she has a safe and beautiful pregnancy.
