Answer: Hi dear, It is on higher side since your are pregnant.in Pregnancy your TSH should be around 3 or below .it is also expected that it rises as the pregnancy progresses.so better to start with thyronorm medicine with lower dose now itself so that it is maintained.also keep checking the TSH in every 2-3 months as you might have to alter the dose based on its value.talk to doctor for th right dose .

Question: 5week pregnancy my tsh is 6.2 what dosage of thyroxin should i take
Answer: Hi Dear! Dont worry you have been diagonised at the right time nothing to worry. you will be on medication which wud bring your levels under control but the dosage will be advised by the Dr. and 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. Hope this helps!

Question: I m 7 weeks pregnant n my tsh is 18.68? I m taking thyronorm . When my tsh will be normal??
Answer: Women with established hypothyroidism should have a TSH test once pregnancy is confirmed, as thyroid hormone requirements increase during pregnancy, often leading to the need to increase the levothyroxine dose. If the TSH is normal, no further monitoring is typically required.  Untreated severe hypothyroidism in the mother can lead to impaired brain development. If hypothyroidism is managed and treated properly, then both mother and baby are likely to be well. The extra medical care that you receive will help you to have a healthy and successful pregnancy. Whether or not your baby will be born with hypothyroidism mainly depends on the cause for hypothyroidism in you.
