Question: I am 5 weeks pregnant and my thyroid level is 2.95, is there any problem!!??
Answer: Hello! If you have pre existing thyroid or either hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, then you need a put more attention towards it because it may cause premature birth, preeclampsia (High BP), miscarriage, and low birth weight among other problems. For any of the cases, you need a proper treatment. For hyperthyroidism, an antithyroid medication is given to control thyroid hormone production. For hypothyroidism hormone called levothyroxine, which is similar to the hormone T4 made by the thyroid is given. Normal Range , First trimester: less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5 Second trimester: 0.2-3.0 Third trimester: 0.3-3.0. If the TSH is greater than 2.5 at any time during pregnancy, T4 levels should be checked to determine whether the hypothyroidism is overt or subclinical. It’s better not to rely on home remedies to control thyroid as it might work or might not. Still following these remedies can be safe, 1.Take two spoons of pure coconut oil and mix it with a glass of milk. Drink it before bed time every night 2.
