Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am pregnant seven days after the last period date. I am using 50 mg of thyroid tablet at present and I did the thyroid test three days back due to faint line UPT and beta hCG is 306. The thyroid test result is TSH is 8.3 and T3 and T4 are normal. What can I do? Is it possible to maintain the pregnancy by increasing the dosage of thyroid tablet and any ingestion taken for carrying the pregnancy? Please help. Is there any Ayurveda medicine for reducing TSH?

Answered by Dr. Alka

Hello doctor,

I just read your query. See pregnancy is a very crucial phase of life. First of all, do not self-medicate. An increase or decrease in medicine should be left to your doctor. Pregnancy with hypothyroidism can be maintained accurately under the supervision of a doctor. At this point, do not try any other medicine or any home remedies. Just keep on taking your thyroid medication regularly according to your physician's advice because fluctuating levels can affect the health of the mother and baby. Go for regular check-ups with your gynecologist and enjoy this phase.
