Dear Lybrate User, Thanks for the query. During pregnancy it is absolutely essential to mantain TSH in the following manner :1st trimester; 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester :0.2 to 3.0 mU/L & 3rd trimester :0.3 to 3.0 mU/L. If this is not done then it affects fetal growth including brain and mental development. Food or diet has no role there. It is the dosage of Levothyroxine to be taken to control TSH as mentioned above. It is bit too late for you to have thought about this. Please consult the doctor attending on her. Thanks.
