Answer: Hi Dear! Thyroid needs to be 3.0. Dont worry you have been diagonised at the right time nothing to worry, most likrly you will be on medication because Dr.s would not take any chance which wud bring your levels under control..if proper medications are taken it will not affect the child. The baby will undergo a metabolic screening test after delivery which in most of the cases proved the baby to be safe. And sometimes food can aggravate the thyroid levels. So avoiding cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, radishes, peanut, soyabean, kale, spinach can also help maintaining thyroid levels. Limit the sugar intake to balance the thyroid levels. Increase the intake of good fats like avocados, olive oil, salmon, ghee. Do not worry about weight during pregnancy. Good luck!
