Question: I m 9 weeks pregnant..n thyroid was detected in my reports..my TSH was 6 before 20 days so i was taking 37.5 mcg thyronorm.. N now i repeated the test n my TSH was 1.8..so i was suggested to take 12.5 mcg..so should i continue to take 37.5 mcg or 12.5 mcg dosage?
Answer: Hi, actually doctors suggest not to take thyroid test within 20 days. U should go the next test again only after 8-12 weeks from your previous test because it takes minimum 8 weeks for the thyroid gland to get accustomed with ur medicine. So for now, I suggest to continue the same dose 37.5 mcg for few more weeks and then go for the test again in between 8-12 weeks.
