Your picture does not show your TSH. This is extremely important for members so that they can advise about TSH level in pregnancy to keep your baby safe.

You didn't say previously how far along your pregnancy was. TSH level is most important in the early stages of pregnancy, I don't know anything about at your stage.

Holza,

Checking your previous post I see TSH is 3.05 which indicates you are a little undermedicated if you are already taking Levothyroxine or need a little Levothyroxine if you are not already taking it. Ask your GP to start you on Levothyroxine or increase dose.

The foetus will have developed its own thyroid by 12-14 weeks so development should be fine but there is increased risk of premature delivery and development of post-partum psychosis when TSH is high.

Management of primary hypothyroidism: statement by the British Thyroid Association Executive Committee

13. The serum TSH reference range in pregnancy is 0·4–2·5 mU/l in the first trimester and 0·4–3·0 mU/l in the second and third trimesters or should be based on the trimester-specific reference range for the population if available. These reference ranges should be achieved where possible with appropriate doses of L-T4 preconception and most importantly in the first trimester (1/++0). L-T4/L-T3 combination therapy is not recommended in pregnancy (1/+00).

According to the ATA First Trimester TSH levels between 2.5 and 5.0 are associated with in-creased pregnancy loss

Thyroid peroxidase antibodies are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's). There is no cure for Hashimoto's which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. Levothyroxine treatment is for the low thyroid levels it causes. Many people have found that 100% gluten-free diet is helpful in reducing Hashi flares, symptoms and eventually antibodies.

Active B12 >35 is unlikely to be deficient.

Folate 7.3 is adequate.

VitD 96.4 is replete.

Thank you for your reply clutter i am on 100mg of levo I'm waiting to hear back from endo not sure by my results does it mean I'm not converting to t3 very well? So do you feel I many not need to take supplements sorry all the questions thanks 🙏

Holza,

TSH 3.05 is high and means you are not taking enough Levothyroxine. I would increase dose to 125mcg.

I don't think you need to supplement B12, folate or vitD.
