I am 18 4/7 weeks pregnant. I had a miscarriage at about 8 weeks in the past. I have a 12 year old son. I received a letter last Friday from my OB saying my thyroid level was slightly low.(( the blood sample was taken at 15 4/7 weeks pregnant. at that time baby was fine.)) My docs increased my thyroid med from 50mcg to 75 mcg. What are the chances I'd miscarry this baby because of this low thyroid level?? How concerned should I be about this low thyroid level??? Right now, I am a bundle of nerves! Thanks!

Hi,punkinpie I am a patient of the opposite ophypothyroidism.There are some advince of my attending doctor.I hope it can help you. The doctor said that they protested to controle the lever of TSH in a range so as to reduce risk of relapse,if the cancer is inchoate,it's to be ok the THS value in the range of 0.2-0.3,althought it's easier to say than do because whatever the THS value ,It's likely to be a slightly hyperthyroidism.So he said in pregnacy,they did not protest the patient in the sate of hyperthyroidism. Soultions: 1.If you have countercheck the state of you illness for 5 years,it's considered to be cured.And It's no problem to be with child. 2. To do a thyroid content measured with B ultrasonic,reducing the dosage of thyroid hormone until the TSH value beside 1-2.(Anywany,you are facing the risk of cancer relapsing ,just chance variable is high or low).If the thyroid content measure has kept steady for 3 months.you can take a pregnancy .During taking pregnancy you should kept taking Vitamin D and calciu tablet. Take care and good luck!
