So some of may have read my previous posts. I have thyroid antibodies 109-Thyroid peroxidase antibodies. I have read thyroid peroxidase antibodies especially are associated with an increased risk of miscarriage. I have had 6 early miscarriages. The miscarriages have finally led my GP to prescribe me levothyroxine due to an endocrinologists letter. So, my TSH was at 1.73 and I was pregnant with thyroid antibodies. He told me take 50mcg of levothyroxine as 25mcg is too low. I was told these new blood test results are a bit abnormal and I am adjusting my dose to about 36 mcg a day. I started taking the thyroid medication at 50 mcg and below are my levels on MAY 11th:
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies- 109
(Not sure about T3 I will need to pick up my results tomorrow to check what else is on there , these were told to me on the phone and I forgot ask about T3 )
Could this TSH and T4 be a cause of miscarriage?
Could this affect my next ovulation which should occur in about 8 days or so.
Could this affect me getting pregnant?
I was worried about increased TSH in pregnancy now it is the opposite and I worry was this the cause of my miscarriage?
I started adjusting my dose 21st May when should I see results? (Note: I am skipping the weekends and taking 50mcg mon-fri, which reduces overall dose as I was told it works in blocks of 5 days?)
The GP said she is not a specialist in this so she can't say. However, the endocrinologist said it could affect ovulation. I have reduced my dose to get to the 'perfect' levels he wants me to be at. He wants my T4 to be in the upper range around 23, so hopefully this will be the correct dosage now. I see him again in 7 weeks with with another blood test, fingers crossed the dosage has been corrected.
