When anti-thyroid antibodies are significantly higher, it is ideal to start treatment for hypothyroidism, as untreated hypothyroidism can cause several complications in pregnancy to the mother as well as the baby, like premature delivery, low birth weight and so on. You need not take Premosan if you do not have any vomiting. You may continue with folic acid. It is also necessary that the cause of your previous abortion noted so that care can be taken in this pregnancy. Take care.
