Pregnancy and breast feeding are high Thyroid requirement times. That is why your TSH levels are raised to meet your baby and your Thyroid needs, T3 and T4 are normal. Please increase to 75mcgm for 2 months then repeat the test. Your Thyroid hormone levels may become normal also after Pregnancy and Lactation as need is reduced.
