Check anti TPO test. Also start 50 mg daily empty stomach for long time.
Reports are indicative of hypothyroid and control it with thyroid supplement hormone before pregnancy.
Hello, Thanks for the query. You are right, TSH is high, suggestive of hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated by adequate dose of levothyroxine. To have baby strict control of TSH is very essential. It should be maintained around 2 mU/L, even before conception and through the gestation period. I hope things are clear. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.
Hi. This is subclinical hypothyroidism and it's really important to control it before planning pregnancy.
