Thyroid problem pregnancy

Dr. Prashant Kewle states, “Pregnancy is a play of many hormones. The main hormones that control the brain are - 

  • FSH
  • LH 
  • TSH 

A change in hormones can cause fast metabolism and may lead to abortion. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism may both cause a change in metabolism. Thyroid disorders can affect the chances of pregnancy and conceiving. Due to a lack of metabolism, the chances of conceiving are low. As per pregnancy protocol, a thyroid profile with T3, T4, and TSH is a must. This will help you give good results if your hormones are kept normal in a healthy condition through medications. Pregnancy will affect the thyroid.”

  • Surgery can be done

  • Long term medications 
  • In case of hypothyroidism, only medications are taken."

Surgery for thyroid 

Dr. Prashant Kewle states, “There is no major scar mark in the neck in case of surgery due to thyroid. This is not bad at all. There is a minor line in the case of thyroid surgery. Endoscopy surgery can help through the mouth or armpit. There are certain limitations due to the small size of the lump. One incision can help in removing the thyroid lump.”
