Tsh level increased
Doctor Answers (3) on Tsh level increased
It would be wise to do two tests considering your history of hypothyroidism and pregnancy. A full thyroid profile (free T3, free T4, TSH) for yourself and check if a heel prick testing of TSH, was done for your baby. If not get it done.
A replacement dose of Eltroxin 50 ug would be required if:
a. You are symptomatic of hypothyroidism like sleepiness, constipation and lethargy.
b. If free T3 and free T4 levels are below the normal range.
Eltroxin is safe for breast feeding mothers.
