Shall I take this thyronorm considering the heart complexity ?

Hi, I am 30 weeks pregnant, and my thyroid T4 is 0.84 ng/dl and TSH is 3.854. I also have heart disease- moderate mitral stenosis. Though i dont have major heart symptoms problems. My doctor has prescribed Thyronorm 25 mcg (Thyroxine Sodium). Shall I take this thyronorm considering the heart complexity?

Hi Sheela
Your TSH levels are in normal range . I dont think you need Thyronorm. But your doctor started in a very low dose.
Considering your Mitral Stenosis , the final decision resides with a Cardiologist and Endocrinologist both together as a team.
Good Luck
