Im a bit confused and wondered whether there was any advice on here from anyone.
My thyroid levels were 4.4 i think when i got prescribed thyroxine; i got pregnant straight away and was told the thyroid levels should be between 1-2 ideally for pregnancies (although its possible to get pregnant with higher levels).
After starting on a dose of 25mcg i upped to 50mcg during pregnancy and had my follow up apt today with endocrinologist.
I got told that although the levels are now 2.6 its still near the high range for a pregnant lady so hence the dose is upped to 75mcg. All good an well.
Now this is the confusing bit. The dr said that had i not been trying to get pregnant they wouldnt have considered giving me thyroxine, despite all symptoms etc. He has advised one week after birth of baby i totally stop my meds and he will review it as a follow up blood test.
Surely if in pregnancy i have had to up the dosages, suddenly stopping them and claiming I won’t need it at all could have an adverse impact on my health.
Am i the only one who feels this is odd?!
Any comments will be appreciated ☺️
