Hi, does anyone know anything about guidelines for TSH levels in pregnancy? I've never been diagnosed with a thyroid problem before but my midwife is concerned about my TSH levels.
They were 2.8 in the first trimester which the midwife said was borderline and should be treated but GP refused saying anything below 5 was normal.
They're now 3.6 in the second trimester which again a different midwife says is borderline and should be treated and is sending me back to GP. should I push for medication or are these levels ok without a confirmed thyroid issue?
I have some symptoms, both now and prior to pregnancy, such as IBS, dry skin and restless legs but would such a borderline result even cause symptoms? Should I push for them to check T3/4 levels too? I'm just a bit worried as I've read that thyroid problems can increase the risk of stillbirth and developmental issues but from what I've read I can't work out if there's really even a problem or not.
Many thanks for any help.
