    Hypothyroidism and pregnant

    I am 26 years old and 12 weeks pregnant and Hypothyroidism and my blood test result was TSH 9.67 and there is another number i don't know for what it was 11.8

    started to take levothyroxine 50 gm since last week, i have never took any thyroid medication before.

    my Dr said that the thyroid is doing fine but the hormone is hight (what that mean) sorry i am new to this and don't have any idea about thyroid problems.
    a blood test on October revealed that i am having under active thyroid (and i wasn't pregnant) and the dr didn't give me any medication.

    i have another blood test after 5 weeks, but still worry about the baby.

    what do you think about TSH level? is it too high?

    in advance

    Hi Hun first of all congratulations for getting pregnant. Your doctor is right....a TSH of 9 is quite high hence you have to take some thyroxine. The other number you are talking about must be FT4 which looks quite low as well.

    If you click on this thread
    http://www.thyroidhelp.org/forums/sh...ence-Ranges-UK

    It will show you right TSH and FT4 numbers. Things to mind is when TSH is high, you are underactive and your FT4 becomes low. When you take thyroxine, your FT4 goes up and TSH comes down and you become euthyroid.
    Hope things go smooth for you....wish you all the best.
