Thyroid in Pregnancy

Thyroid in Pregnancy

Importance of Thyroid during Pregnancy. Thyroid hormones are necessary for normal fetal development during the first 3 months. Because hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are possible, thyroid levels should be monitored before and throughout your pregnancy.

Thyroid hormones are particularly necessary to assure healthy fetal development of the brain and nervous system during the first three months of your pregnancy since the baby depends on your hormones

The thyroid is an organ located in the front of your neck that releases hormones that regulate your metabolism

Graves Disease Hashimoto's Disease

Know your Thyroid


Hyperthyroid disease – The most common cause of maternal hyperthyroidism during pregnancy is the autoimmune disorder Grave’s Disease. In this disorder, the body makes an antibody ( a protein produced by the body when it thinks a virus or bacteria is present) called thryoid stimulating immunoglobulin (TSI) that causes the thyroid to overreact and make too much thyroid hormone.

Hypothyroid disease—The most common cause of hypothyroidism is the autoimmune disorder known as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. In this condition, the body mistakenly attacks the cells of the thyroid gland, leaving the thyroid without enough cells and enzymes to make enough thyroid hormone to meet the body’s needs

Talk to your Obstetrician if you have prior history of thyroid problems

Untreated thyroid diseases during pregnancy may lead to premature birth, preeclampsia (a severe increase in blood pressure), miscarriage, and low birth weight among other problems . I strongly believe in preventive care during the first few months, which makes a significant difference to baby's health !
