I am 8 weeks and recently had my booking appointment where the midwife took my blood. The results came back and I have a hyperactive thyroid ( expected I have a cyst on my thyroid and it was hyperactive when I was expecting my daughter ). I'm a bit worried this time as it's higher than ever.
I'm being referred to a endocrinologist I was never in medication with my daughter so you think I will be now ? What have other ladies with hyperactive thyroid numbers when they were medicated ? I was never given anything with my daughter but had no symptoms. But now I'm noticing I'm getting heart palpations and diarrhoea sorry tmi !
Thanks for your help ladies
I'm not hyper but I'm hypo. You really need to see the ranges to see how hyper you are, but usually FT3 would be around 6 at the maximum. Your FT4 isn't that high but they like the TSH to be around the 1 mark.
Hopefully you've seen someone by now and they've put your mind at rest?
I'm seeing the endocrine antenatal clinic throughout and they've been really good at checking my levels and adjusting medication so I'm sure you'll be fine!
Thank you for your reply. I have a appointment on Wednesday so hopefully they can sort it all out
