Answer: Hi dear, TSH of 4.6 is normal for non pregnant women,but in pregnancy the levels needs to be around 3 or below.you should consult a doctor regarding thyroid medicine.a minimal dose at this point would be fine.as the pregnancy progresses it might need adjustments too as tsh would increase further.

    Thanks a lot mam, doctor has prescribed us Thyroxin 25mcg tablets once in a day ( early morning with overnight fasting). I hope this will avoid any risks.
