Thyroid In Pregnancy

If you have thyroid disease and are now pregnant, you must immediately check your thyroid levels !

Always remember, that it is the first five months of pregnancy , where your baby is completely dependent on your hormones. Thus having the right dose, and thus ensuring right levels of hormones is important for the health of your baby and you.

Untreated or uncontrolled thyroid disease may increase the risk of abortion, risk of premature delivery, low birth weight, and increases chances of caesarian section.

If you are under our pregnancy care program, and detected to have thyroid disease before or during pregnancy, you will have a review with our Endocrinologist.

Having a thyroid disease during pregnancy, puts you into the category of "high risk during pregnancy". To prevent any bad effects on the mother and baby, all one needs is a methodical meticulous monitoring for thyroid levels, monitoring of your clinical symptoms and baby’s well being.
