although its true that from 2 try baby's thyroid gland starts producing hormone by itself but mom's should also be within range to support baby to produce hormone properly Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello..
discuss with your doctor for the same... and opt for medication.. The type of thyroid replacement medication that should be used during pregnancy is clearly stated: oral levothyroxine only. Other thyroid medications, such as T3 or desiccated thyroid, are not recommended.. Both maternal and fetal hypothyroidism are known to have serious adverse effects on the fetus. Therefore maternal hypothyroidism should be avoided. Targeted case finding is recommended at the first prenatal visit or at diagnosis of pregnancy.. it affects more on fetal brain and fetal thyroid gland...
