Question: What are the risks for the baby of mothers suffering with thyroid? Dosage in final stage is @100mg.
Answer: I hope it is 100 mcg..microgram instead of 100 mg.Requirement of thyroid hormone increases during pregnancy.In the first trimester its requirement will be more.During 2 nd trimester onwards fetus will develop its own thyroid gland and starts producing it but it may not be sufficient for it.So mothers who are suffering from hypothyroidism must take treatment by having thyronorm tablets in sufficient dose as suggested by an endocrinologist preferably.They will change the dose usually after 4 to 5 weeks according to ur TSH value at that time.T3 and T4 are the thyroid hormones.TSH is thyroid stimulating hormone.In most of the cases T3 and T4 levels will be in the limit but if TSH value is above the limit or near to border line you will have to go for treatment for hypothyroidism.In this case eventhough T3 and T4 are in the limit higher TSH value indicates that the demand for thyroid hormone is more.Lack of thyroid hormone has adverse effects on babies.It can affect the IQ of babies...mental health..cause miscarriage etc
